Rode the Lakeshore Limited from Toledo to Chicago in the summer of 1988, I remember pushing the foot pedal to flush the toilet and being able to see the railroad ties going by underneath the train.

This should surprise nobody. There's a reason why there's a sign in toilets on Dutch trains asking travellers to please not use them while waiting at stations.

It seems that Amtrak no longer does this. They use a holding tank.
