All aboard! You know there's something special about riding on a train, you get more of an experience than flying I think. Maybe it's the scenery or the train stops along the way. But you have to admit ,there's something nostalgic about traveling by train. To me it's a representation of a lost frontier, the meeting of an American past to the present and future. I highly recommend you take the kids on at least one train ride because it's an adventure they will never forget for the rest of their lives. Now some good news,  Amtrak has started a new service in Hope, Arkansas and Kicker 102.5 would like to send you and a guest on an ‘Escape to Chicago’ aboard the Texas Eagle.   If you're the winner you get round-trip tickets including a fabulous two-night stay at a Holiday Inn in Chicago. Ride the rails in comfort with roomy seats you can stretch out in, with plenty of leg room or grab a bite to eat in the cozy diner. To enter this contest just head over to the Kicker VIP Club on Monday (May 6) at For more information on Amtrak destinations go to Enjoy the journey from Amtrak and Today’s New Country Kicker 102.5!
