Counting Up the Miles on Amtrak and VIA Rail.

Somebody asked a few days ago, so I‘ve been trying to figure out how many miles I’ve accumulated on Amtrak over the years. Unfortunately, until recently I haven’t thought to do that, so the other night – insomnia had kicked to provide time for this semi-mindless exercise – I checked my records and added a couple of trips here and there to allow for some of my rail travels before I began keeping track. So here’s my best conservative estimate:

Miles to date on Amtrak – 150,800

Miles to date on VIA Rail Canada -18,000

Miles on Chihuahua al Pacifico Railway, (Copper Canyon) Mexico – 405

And you know what? I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them!
