Of all the Americans who’ve eschewed air travel in favor of the charms of the train, perhaps none has been more loyal than a man nicknamed Amtrak Joe. Having lost his wife and daughter in an auto accident in 1972, he began commuting to his job in Washington on Amtrak—a 250-mile round trip from his home in Wilmington, Del. He made the trip every working day for 36 years. By his own reckoning, he figured he’d logged over 2 million miles on the train.
Today, of course, Amtrak Joe has a new moniker.
