Retro Road Podcast

Sep 11, 2018

Join Mary and Melinda as they talk about train travel.  

Find out why they wanted to travel by train and what they were expecting as they traveled from Chicago to Los Angeles on the Empire Builder and the Coast Starlight. 

 On this episode, we talk about the book that started the whole train conversation.  We discuss the different trains we traveled on and why we selected them.  And we talk about the beautiful vintage Pacific Parlor Car -- the one we've never seen because it was retired mere weeks before our trip.
