I assumed there would be Wi-Fi on the train, but there wasn't—probably a good option for long-distance trains when people might want to watch shows or get work done.

Pros: Nothing. I had hip surgery and I had difficulty with the stairs. Although we had legroom the seats felt uncomfortable. The Pittsburgh Station was atrocious. None of the machines worked and we lost money. Cons: The seats are wearing and starting to get butt The Pittsburgh Station. Improve time of arrival for train 30. It was an hour late and I understood that to be late often according to other passengers. Tips: Bring a pillow to sit on if you are traveling 7 hours or more on coach. Call the station to see if the am train 30 is on time. Get a roomette if you have issues with chairs.
