My wife took Greyhound last year and Amtrak this year between Texas and Michigan. She didn't mind the bus so much (we've been on hundreds of busses in South America), but she said Amtrak is much much nicer.

You'll have to go to Washington to get a train west, and then it is fairly direct to Seattle.

The sad thing about Amtrak is that the Sunset Limited no longer travels east of New Orleans to Florida, like it used to. And of course, they used the Hurricane Katrina excuse to not resume service, despite that CSX long ago rebuilt portions of the line that was destroyed when Katrina struck.

Today, one living in most parts of the southeast have to do one of several options: find their own way to New Orleans from the east(and get there on a day the Sunset Limited operates westbound from NOLA), travel north to any city the Crescent serves(and deal with an overnight layover in NOLA before transferring to the Sunset Limited, after arriving there), or travel up to either Washington, DC or Chicago to travel west. Like I hinted above, traveling from New Orleans is complicated by the fact the Sunset Limited only operates 3 days a week.
