I'm the author of "All Aboard! The Complete North American Train Travel Guide." An updated, revised 3rd edition, published by Chicago Review Press, is now in bookstores and can be ordered through this link: http://amzn.com/1569763097
Over the years, I've visited more than 25 countries in Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Since leaving Honolulu and retiring to Maui, I've been spending more time at my freelance writing, and much of that has been about rail travel.
