THIS YEAR, AMTRAK IS EXPANDING THE NATIONAL TRAIN DAY CELEBRATION TO BETTER SUPPORT ALL COMMUNITIES AND EVOLVE IT INTO A TRAVELING, COMMUNITY-CENTRIC EXPERIENCE UNDER THE NEW NAME OF AMTRAK TRAIN DAYS
After seven years of successful National Train Day events, where train enthusiasts would gather to show their support of the trains and train travel in over 300 communities across the nation on the same day, we decided to make it even bigger and better.
Amtrak Train Days is kicking off at Chicago Union Station on May 9th, and then will hit the rails, traveling to multiple locations across the country May through November. The touring event will feature the Amtrak Exhibit Train at select stops. While we can't stop in every community, Amtrak invites local stations, state partners, rail industry colleagues and communities to join in the celebration of train travel by hosting their own Amtrak Train Days events, starting on May 9th, as part of the kick-off, or during a local event that your community chooses on another date.
