    This sounds like it might be fun, but when searching for a station in Arizona, I got a 404:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /amtrak/StationSearchResults.jsp was not found on this server.
    IBM_HTTP_Server/ Apache/2.0.47 (Unix) Server at stations.amtrak.com Port 80

    Managing a webserver is slightly easier than managing trains, so this does not bode well.

    It too bad the entire trip has to be that day, not just the start or end.

    This is actually perfect for me — we’re celebrating my birthday that day, and I wanted to ride the rails instead of driving. Thanks, Consumerist!

    Yeah… maybe if it was a little less limited more people would be buying. A valiant effort all the same.
