Meeting New People on the Silver Service Train

Making New Friends for Life

by Whitney Pemberton

York, Pennsylvania

One time while traveling on the train from South Carolina to Philadelphia, my mom and I met a wonderful couple who were returning to their home in New Jersey. We laughed and talked and had a ball.

The thing that I will remember most about that trip was that it was my first time walking from coach to coach. I also remember taking pictures of the Capitol while going through Washington.

Mostly, I will remember that day because it was the day that we made friends for life.
