The National is the onboard American culture magazine for Amtrak, published by Ink and produced by a dedicated staff of media professionals out of an Ink satellite office in Brooklyn, New York.
The title of the magazine speaks to our ambition: to celebrate the culture and personalities defining life along America’s rails—in Amtrak’s 500 destinations and everywhere in between. In our pages you’ll find in-depth reporting and beautiful photography from across the country, as well as fiction, poetry and essays from some of America’s most acclaimed voices.
