We are planning to get the Empire Builder train from Chicago to Seatle first week in June. Would like to stop off for a few days and visit Yellowstone. What is the best way to do this? I anticipate a railstop somewhere within a day's drive of Yellowstone? So a day to drive there, 3 days in the Park and a day to drive back to pick up the train to Seatle. Does this sound doable, and what train stop do we go for? If there is any alternative to hiring a car from train stop to Yellowstone, we would prefer that - is there a bus? Coming from the UK. I know we could go to SLC and drive, but we have already done that (beautiful) train trip Chicago to SF and wanted to try the northern route this time. If its not possible to do this easily would a trip to Galcier NP be a good alternative - assuming there is an Amtrak stop reasonably near?? sorry, lots of question!
