Media pack

Our magazines

The National

The National quite literally embodies Amtrak’s motto: “See where the train can take you”. Celebrating the romance of cross-country travel, the magazine shows its five million-plus readers the real breadth of the US, from the people transforming cities to the companies revitalising manufacturing, plus the subcultures the news ignores. Personal stories and poems, photo essays and artwork make a compelling case for exploring the country by train.

Key points

  • In front of 32 million-plus people per year
  • Issues per year: Six
  • Advertising contact: Mark Duke


Ink launched a new responsive website housing the content for The National magazine in 2016 and worked with Amtrak's in-house teams to upload that content directly onto every train, ensuring a seamless and quick download time indepndent of outside connection speeds.

Every edition is supported with a customer newsletter and a raft of social media outreach.
