4th QUARTER 2021: In this third issue of PTJ devoted largely to Amtrak’s 50th anniversary, our main feature looks back at an almost forgotten long-distance Amtrak train: the New York/Washington–Kansas City National Limited. Author Tom Savio takes us behind the scenes of the new operation along with photos of the first Rocky Mountaineer trains out of Denver. Follow Amtrak employee Mark Jones through his 30-plus-year career with Amtrak, from his days of serving passengers in an Amcafe car to being at the throttle of the California Zephyr. All this and more in the 2021-4 issue of Passenger Train Journal!
