If you're anything like me, you've spent a fair amount of time daydreaming about taking a cross-country train, staring at endless vistas, penning the next great American novel or catching up on a thick stack of books, and listening to endless jazzy playlists.

Well, now's the time to say all aboard to that fantasy, thanks to Amtrak Vacations' biggest sale of the year. The flash sale runs through April 6th, and the savings for your rail journey are deep: You'll get $300 off bedrooms or $200 off roomettes (the deal is only applicable when you choose private sleeping accommodations).
