BTW, for anybody wondering about long distance train travel in the USA, it's not as good as in Europe, but that being said - if you're the type who can sleep in (large) coach seats, if you want to make several stops on your trip, and if having a very generous free baggage allowance matters to you, can be a good option.

I'm doing an entire cross country trip with 2 multi-day stops, 2 checked bags, and 2 large carry-ons, for the cost of a single cross country flight and no airport hassle.


Also, if you book early enough, the teeny sleeper rooms aren't really that much more expensive. Less than first class air travel.
