There are a lot of sites that can show you air fares over a range of dates, some of them up to a month. But where can I find something vaguely like that for Amtrak?

I'd like to go what ever day is the cheapest in a time span of three weeks or more, and I would rather not go to Amtrak.com and do one day at a time twenty times.

Rome2Rio will tell me a nice low price, but it won't tell me what day it is on.

Amsnag is what you want.

Note that for most Amtrak routes, especially the long distance ones, the base fares are relatively static from one day to the next - they will go up over time though as the cheapest tickets sell out. However the cost of bedroom accommodation can be 50% or even 100% higher from one day to another.

On the commuter routes such as the NE corridor there will be variation on fares throughout the day (and between train types).
