Amtrak Trains

Discover the USA on the fantastic AMTRAK network

Relaxing on board one of Amtrak's comfortable long-distance trains is one of the best ways to discover the USA, a vast country with great, diverse cities and ever-changing landscapes.

On overnight journeys, passengers usually enjoy accommodation in a Superliner Roomette, which are located on both the upper and lower levels of the double-decker carriages. Roomettes come equipped with two comfortable reclining seats, which convert to upper and lower berths at night and are next to a large window. Perfect for taking in the stunning views. Each cabin also comes with individual climate control and a fold down table, as well as fresh towels and complimentary bottled water. A WC, shower and washroom facilities are located at the end of each carriage. Some Amtrak trains also have a limited number of bedrooms, available at a supplement. These cabins come with a daytime sofa which converts into a wide lower-berth and comfortable upper-berth at night, and the added benefit of their own en-suite shower, washbasin and WC. Passengers travelling on some overnight sleeper services can enjoy a meal in the restaurant car, and many Amtrak trains also have lounge, dinette and café cars where passengers can purchase snacks, meals and beverages at leisure.
