Would you like to travel on a train? I rode the Amtrak train from Minot to Chicago for Thanksgiving last year with my family. The train was magical. It swayed back and forth and rode the rails extremely fast. We went from Minot Station to Union Station in Chicago. Trains have different cars which allow people to walk around when the train is moving.


There are many cars, but the best ones are the dining car, sleeping car, and the viewing car. The viewing car has large windows and comfy chairs. Inside the family car there are couches that transform into beds. In the dining car, a waiter served delicious food while we enjoyed nice lighting and cool window tables.


Riding on an Amtrak train is a cool experience. Amtraks from Minot can go West or East and to big cities like Seattle. I recommend taking the train because it is an exciting and magical experience.
