New tool lets you keep track of over 300 daily trains across the country.

The company decided to approach Google with the idea after discovering that checking the status of a train is the second most popular activity on their website, right after buying tickets. Located in the bottom left corner of the Amtrak Website, the map features a clean design and simple user interface.
