Sue StartWe boarded the Lake Shore Limited in New York and head for Chicago, for this first leg of our journey across America. We chose a sleeper with toilet, but no shower.The train was a single storey variety with dining car.  We loved sitting back in comfort as we travelled beside the Hudson river and prairie. Accommodation was tiny but perfectly functional.  We loved meeting people at meals.  People from all walks of life and nationalities. We  find train travel a great way to cover a lot of territory in a relatively short time. Even though it was comfortable sleep eluded us.

Our first train is out of Penn Station, New York. We are quickly alongside the Hudson River. While the river is on the wrong side of the train for us, we get to see many little water offshoots on our side and numerous quaint houses in idyllic water view setting. The Hudson is still beside us at dusk. The staff on this train are great - helpful and, at times, amusing. The food is not too bad either. We arrive in  Chicago somewhat tired, not being used to sleeping on trains.
