Amtrak’s New Magazine Hits the Tracks


Amtrak is now distributing its new magazine, The National, aboard its trains.

The free publication is being placed in seatbacks and replaces Arrive, a magazine that was distributed primarily in the Northeast Corridor.

“We are dedicated to enhancing our customers’ on-board experience, highlighting the unique elements that Amtrak offers and The National does just that,” said Rob Friedman, Amtrak’s vice president of brand management and marketing, in a news release.

Freidman said the magazine will focus on personalities, culture and destinations along Amtrak routes

The first issue of The National features travel essays, fiction, poetry and fine-art photography.

The magazine is produced in New York by Ink, a travel media company.
