Amtrak's jet-powered Turboliner turbine train offers the advantages of jet aircraft travel, yet it never leaves the ground. The French-built Turboliner runs with five wide cars, capable of carrying 296 passengers in quiet comfort. Fully-reclining seats and convenient food and beverage facilities are just a few of the train's many features.

This magnificent 55-foot holly tree, with its red berries, is one of the largest in the East. It stands at Jackson, Md., alongside B&O's main line between Washington and New York, on land owned by the railroad.
