A few years back I rode to Boston from Cleveland, and the best part was coming through the area in which I grew up. As the train sped east over the CSX Erie West Sub, I could tell fellow passengers about where we were passing through and tell them the name of streets that we could hear our train's horn sounding for, my most proud one was when we heard the horn at Park Road crossing and I told the fellow passengers that this is my neighborhood we're passing.
Its an incredible experience, to show passengers from all over the country my hometown of Painesville Township, a place they never heard of but now got to see it in person. Thank you Amtrak.
