You'll follow the historic B&O line on your journey through the Potomac Valley, past historic Harpers Ferry and the Allegheny Mountains into Pittsburgh. Cross into Ohio heading north to Cleveland, and then across Ohio and Indiana into the center of Chicago.

Spacious Superliner accommodations make your trip more enjoyable, with showers and thoughtful amenities, friendly service and delicious dining. Choose a wide, comfortable Reserved Coach seat, or make reservations for sleeping car accommodations and enjoy watching the spectacular scenery roll past.
