Click on the name of one of the books below about Amtrak train travel for more information on that book. You will also be give the opportunity to order the book right on-line! I've had very good luck even in using this service to obtain "out-of-print" and other hard to find books about Amtrak.

Book prices do fluctuate and the price shown might not be the current price. When you click on the book name, you will be placed directly into the book catalog and be shown the current price of the book.

We are sad to report that Jack Swanson, author of the book that provided the most detailed minute by minute scenic guide to the Amtrak routes: "Rail Ventures", died last year. The book was extremely popular with Amtrak travelers and was up to its seventh edition! This book is currently very difficult to locate. However, our sources tell us that the publisher and Jack's widow are working with someone to come up with a new updated edition of the book. Every Amtrak traveler should have a copy of this book with them on their rail journeys and we look forward to the availability of a new updated edition.
