Amtrak is now distributing its new magazine, The National, onboard 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’ onboard 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.
