Apr 28 '13 at 5:18 comment added Mark Mayo Well I ended up in the US doing DC to Austin, and even that one went via Chicago - and it's LONG ;)

Oct 12 '12 at 14:56 comment added Karlson @Vince When I answered I did see multiple options both going through Chicago and not. I just listed only one. Flimzy listed another and if you are a fan of really long rides you can do Boston -> New York -> New Orleans -> LA, but the generic statement you made in your original comment didn't make any sense.
Oct 12 '12 at 13:41 comment added Vince And by the way, I just found this quote in the California Zephyr route guide: "Most Amtrak long-distance trains either originate or terminate in Chicago, connecting to other service." (amtrak.com/ccurl/930/454/… - page 9), that's what I'm talking about.
Oct 12 '12 at 13:24 comment added Vince I just wanted to point that not only LakeShore Limited and Empire Builder allow you to cross the continent. On Amtrak route atlas (tickets.amtrak.com/secure/content/routeatlas/index.html) we clearly see that most cross-continental lines end up in Chicago, which was what I meant (I think the topic here is not about all the commuter, regional train lines). But indeed again maybe you don't see at all that while your answer only suggests one possibility, there are in fact plenty of cross-continental routes in the US ...
Oct 12 '12 at 12:29 comment added Karlson @Vince For the US almost every line starts from Chicago What are you talking about? Chicago because of being a commodity hub is probably one of the largest if not the largest rail hub in the US but I don't see how Northeast Lines Start from Chicago at all....
