While recording Private Rail Car Dearing before leaving Savannah Georgia I heard what I figured was a late passenger train arriving in station. I was expecting it to stop – but it kept traveling through. So I stopped filming the Dearing and went to see what I was missing. To my surprise it was Amtrak’s Auto Train.
Most people who don’t live in Eastern United States are unaware of Amtrak’s Auto Train. It’s the only one of it’s kind in USA.
This was my first time seeing an Auto Train running. Previously only seen videos.
