Amtrak train #30 from Martinsburg to DC was 4 hours late. Yes that is 4 hours. I missed the bus that I had scheduled from DC to NY and have to book another one at 6pm instead of 3 pm.

Plan ahead and you will stay entertained during the entire train ride.

Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the train?
