This event has been organized and will be led by Chris Guenzler. Chris has traveled more than a million miles by Amtrak and is quickly approaching two million miles of overall rail travel. He has traveled, photographed, and posted reports related to all of the Amtrak routes, most other tourist railway lines in North America, and over quite a bit of other rare mileage. The train watching platform and cabin in La Plata was dedicated and named The Chris Guenzler Millionth Mile Lookout Point at a ceremony commemorating when Chris acheived his millionth rail mile enroute to La Plata on April 27, 2007. The following year on April 7, 2008, Chris reached exactly one million miles of Amtrak travel as he stepped off the Amtrak Southwest Chief in La Plata. Details and photographs from these events that celebrated Chris' record rail travel achievements can be found at: TrainWeb.com/chris1mm.html. Rail travel reports and photographs by Chris Guenzler can be viewed at TrainWeb.org/chris.
