AmtrakOne way to maximize time out of the office is to meet on the go. Amtrak will charter trains for groups or attach regular or "conference" cars to commercial passenger trains for groups. Conference cars include 15 first-class seats, a café/bar and several small meeting rooms with sliding glass doors. Sometimes, an extra car isn't necessary: Amtrak lets large groups commandeer a regular car on a commercial train all for themselves; coaches seat 70.
