Yet, seniors' interest in travel is at an all-time high, whether to visit dispersed relatives and friends or to take vacations that were postponed during working years. For really long distances, the speed of air travel is unequaled, but for medium-distance trips seniors are ofter put off by long airport waits, safety screening, tightly-packed seats, baggage fees, and other inconveniences. Fortunately, another option is available for North Carolina seniors - the train.
