No Need to Hit Pause When You Ride With Amtrak

Remember the blissful rush of playing your Nintendo Switch in the backseat of the car, racing to snag one last powerup before the battery ran out, not a care in the world as someone else took care of the driving? There's good news: the technological wizards at Amtrak have created a sort of time machine that simulates this experience — but now there's no parental figure threatening to turn the car around and take away your gaming device.

With plenty of power outlets for your gaming devices, complimentary WiFi, loads of elbow space between you and your sticky-fingered siblings, and overhead storage you can access any time, there's no better way to keep the gaming lights on than train travel.

Go ahead and bring that extra CRT for the Smash Melee tournament or an entire dual screen monitor setup — you would be far from the first.

Arrive Downtown, Not Out of Town
