Railroads played an active role in developing America's national parks. From building beautiful lodges in far away spots to urging Americans to find "wonderland," America's railroads have connected us to these special places.

There are over 200 National Park Service units accessible by Amtrak. Why not enjoy your journey as much as the destination?
