All aboard for vintage train trip to the past

Larry Hughes, a porter and waiter for Pullman Rail Journeys, enjoys the view aboard Amtrak's City of New Orleans. Since 2012, riders have been able to enjoy a vintage travel experience between Chicago and New Orleans, complete with three-course lunches, free drinks, attentive service and live music in expensively restored cars kept separate from the rest of the train.
