Amtrak Price Examples
http://trainweb.com/travel/prices.htm

On this page you will find numerous examples of prices of Amtrak trips. Click here to go to reservations.amtrak.com to get an exact price quote for a rail trip that you plan to take. You do not need to book your trip in order to just get a price quote. Or, you can call 1-800-USA-RAIL. Another good source of getting a quote for your rail travel along with info about hotels, auto rentals, air segments, and tourist attractions is one of the travel agents that are very experienced with booking Amtrak trips. Click here for a list of travel agents that are recommended by TrainWeb.

Please note that most of the prices quotes listed below are out of date, but they do give you a good ballpark idea of the cost of travel by rail. Click here for the cost of more recent rail travel that I have done.
