    Surprisingly, the Chicago-New York train will get there first. It would take that train only 3.75 hours to get there at 80 mph, whereas the Pittsburgh-New York train has to cover 371 miles at 90 mph, which would take it 4.12 hours to complete — and by the time it leaves Pittsburgh, the Chicago train is only 45 minutes from arriving in New York City in any event!

    If they are Amtrak trains, they’ll both be late.

    I don’t know about that. New York is way more than 300 miles from Chicago..

    Neither. Both will make 50 stops along the way.

    you forgot about bridge washouts, which will force detours…

    How about the new three way seating on Via Rail?

    Not on the West Coast! Not any more!

    Amtrak can be on time! Who’d ever have thought it?

    711 miles from Chicago to New York, not that either of these places existed back then :)

    Now if these were Australian trains they would never be late as it’s easier to cancel the train…ergo it’s not late.

    I’ve taken the New York-Chicago train a few times. It’s more than 700 miles and takes 20 hours. So far, I’ve never had a breakdown, and one winter, during a blizzard, it was the only transportation system that kept going. In general, I love the train, and I’m not particularly bugged if it takes longer. When you count all the time and hassle you spend getting to the airport, standing in security, etc, it’s not even all that much longer than flying.

    Remember that old song:

    You leave the Pennsylvania station
    ‘Bout a quarter to four,
    You read War and Peace
    And then you’re in Baltimore.
    Dinner in the diner,
    Nothing could be finer
    Than to have your next six meals in Carolina.
    When you hear the whistle blowin’ eight to the bar
    Then you know the goods ahead has derailed a car.
    Perhaps if they shoveled coal in
    They could get the bloody thing rollin’.
    Boo! Hoo! I think we’re staying right where we are…

    It’s a little over 900 miles by rail from NYC to Chicago. The Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central R.R. had competing first-class services that once took you there in 16 hours on either the PRR’s Broadway Limited or the NYC’s 20th Century Limited.
