Traveling by train sounds like a novel idea made romantic by the classic movie White Christmas, but it is really a relaxing, fabulously modern way to travel with an infant. Here I'll list the four tips that made our trip go more smoothly.

1. Think light. Don't pack the fridge, just the necessary goodies.
2. Take snacks. While there is a snack car, it may be way at the other end of the train.
3. Take a sweater, blanket for baby and reading material. Freezing while bored is no fun.
4. Enjoy the view. Train travel is a scenic way to travel why not enjoy the sights.

Also, another bonus is children under two travel free on Amtrak trains and older children can travel at reduced rates.
