Sorry, no long distance trains here in Nashville. The drive to washington, DC is about 10-12 hours. The drive to washington state would take days.

Hope this helps!

If you are going to Washington, DC, you can take trains from Memphis (a 3- to 4- hour drive from Nashville) or Atlanta (a 4- to 5- hour drive). The train from Memphis goes through Chicago, and that's a LONG way out of the way, though. Check www.amtrak.com for more info.

The cost of the train, though, is not any cheaper, and is often much more expensive, than flying. Southwest Airlines (www.southwest.com) has direct flights from Nashville to Washington (Dulles) airport for a lot lot less money and time than you'd spend taking a train.
