National Train Day

Trains take us where we need to go, want to go. They remind us of other lives seen only out the window. They employ us, bring passengers with a few extra dollars to spend into local coffee shops, draw activity downtown, attract funds to the roads and buildings around the stations. They bring us to school, to work, to visit a friend in need. 

Join Amtrak on May 11, 2013 at the sixth annual National Train Day to show that trains matter to you, your town, and your community. Attend an event around the country or host your own.  Until then, spend some time on the National Train Day site to learn more about the ways trains impact our lives and share your story.
