Rosario Dawson Joins Amtrak To Celebrate National Train Day, which will take place around the country on May 12, 2012. This year marks the 5th annual National Train Day, which is put on annually to bring attention to the importance of train travel in American life.
The emphasis of this year’s National Train Day are the advantages train travel offers over other modes of travel when it comes to experiencing America and its cities and towns. Rosario Dawson agrees that trains offer a unique travel experience, and one that is also environmentally friendly. “I am delighted to join Amtrak and train fans everywhere in celebrating National Train Day,” Dawson said. “I love trains not only because they offer a more intimate way to see the country and experience the communities along the way, but also because they are one of the greenest ways to travel, which is a value that has always been important to me.”
Emmett Freemaux, Amtrack Vice President, Marketing and Product Development, expressed his pleasure at having Rosario Dawson help with this year’s celebrations. “Like many of our customers, she is passionate about staying connected to her community and is someone who enjoys the journey, not just the destination,” Freemaux said.
The 2012 celebrations will take place in Dawson’s hometown of New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles.
