Jim Loomis: Train Travel

Click the image above for a link to the rest of the gallery.

In yesterday’s Honolulu Advertiser was this article written by Jim Loomis, a Maui resident and former staffer of Honolulu Mayor Frank Fasi. Loomis opens with,

“I’ve enjoyed traveling by train since I was a youngster and am convinced it’s the best, most civilized way to travel.”

His article recounts an adventure on the Empire Builder during a Chicago-to-Seattle trip. The photographs are stunning images of the North American railway, the trains and passengers.

For more stories and discussion on rail travel visit Jim Loomis’ blog at or look for his book, All Aboard— The Complete North American Train Travel Guide.
