Did you know that you can take a train from Rockville to Chicago without switching lines?

Amtrak’s Capitol Limited starts its route in DC’s Union Station and then has stops in Rockville, Harper’s Ferry, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and finally ends in Chicago.  The ride from Rockville to Chicago takes a little over 17 hours.
