Review of Amtrak 20 1971-1991 DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
1971 - 1991

ALL ABOARD!! The Call grew louder across the land following the May 1, 1971 start up of AMTRAK. See the events which lead up to the creation of National Railroad Passenger Corporation, then witness day one at Chicago Union Station and ride a 17-car Broadway Limited.

Follow Twenty Years of changes, from the Rainbow Era to 1991. See the gradual transformation of the Empire Builder and many other trains nationwide. We swing from California to the Northeast, E and F Units to Turbo Trains and Metroliners, yards and stations. At the end of this program, test your knowledge of 1970s -90s Amtrak with a short Quiz.

Together with AMTRAK 30 (1991-2001), here is the definitive program on AMTRAK progress and setbacks, what has come and gone, in tribute to those who have striven to Make the Trains Worth Traveling Again.
