Praise Is Rewarding

April 24, 1988

We cruised by rail from Los Angeles to New Orleans through Rod Pick's Sentimental Rail Journeys, P.O. Box 4574, Thousand Oaks, Calif. 91360, telephone (805) 499-9306, in a privately owned and restored railroad lounge and sleeping car.

The service by Pick and his crew are without equal--friendly, courteous and entertaining. My wife and I and 18 others found the trip to be a true vacation. Our hotel was the largest in the French Quarter. A city tour, boat ride on the Mississippi River, a swamp tour and our free time were all pleasurable. Also, we visited three river-front plantations. Although we had previously visited New Orleans, we became better acquainted this time with its charm and history.
