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.
