So, the major events of National Train Day usually consist of equipment displays in the major stations across the Amtrak system. Of course, this includes Acela Express and Keystone Service sets in the Northeastern cities, and Superliner cars in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Florida that are used on long distance trains in those regions. In addition, many private cars are also put on display. Other large cities featured rail equipment and displays from freight railroads, transit agencies, non-profit rail organizations and historical societies. Some smaller events include model train layout from a local club or other train-related items on display. Source Wikipedia.
