Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this one. It tries to do too many things in a scant 90 pages in undersized format. I don't need someone to tell me about the places the trains go; I can get that information more completely elsewhere. Not too much on AMTRAK; more on private companies that offer restored cars. I am guessing these end up as high-end deals. Did the tour companies sponsor the book?
Also,the 2000 publication makes it out of date for the possibly commercial purposes served.

The information is very valuable. I would suggest the author to periodically issue an updated edition.
