Pros: I liked everything about my trip except the length (11h) : It was easy to book online and use my electronic ticket to board, it was more spacious and comfortable than a plane, there were scenic views and free wifi during most of the trip. Cons: Can the train go faster and hence reduce the length of the trip? Put air freshener in the restrooms and have doors that close automatically because I had to get up close the doors myself due to the bad odors. Tips: Bring food and something to do during the trip.
