    Taking the old electric train from Newcastle to Sydney, I keep thinking how crazy it is that the only passenger trains running through this part of Northeast Ohio are one each way, between Midnight and 6am.

    But with around 16 hours from DC to Chicago, and running a bare skeleton route structure, the route that makes sense is an overnight sleeper train, leaving DC after 5pm and arriving in Chicago before 9am.
