July 28, 2023- Visiting friendsChicago to Wisconsin Dells
Pros: The train and staff were good no issues there. Cons: Lets pick up the pace of these trains. It’s offensive how slow american trains go. Why did we have to stop for 20 minutes to let another train pass? Build another track so two trains can go at once it isn’t rocket science. Maglev, high speed transit, every other developed country has figured it out and even plenty of non developed countries. If the trains moved at a reasonable speed ridership would sky rocket. No more excuses make it happen. Tips: Vote in a way that will yield a more efficient nation wide rail network.

March 10, 2023- Visiting familyVancouver to Pasco
Pros: It’s always relaxing, I can read and listen to music. Cons: Well this particular trip the outbound train was about 1 1/2 hrs late and the inbound going home was like 11 1/2 hrs late so this trip was not good. It was probably weather back east that caused both delays, which is Mother Natures fault. The outbound station did not tell us right away about the lateness of the train, nor keep us informed when it was later and later. They needed to do a better job. Tips: Maybe in the winter knowing the trains come from back east, or the Midwest we need to look at the origins of the train and see what their weather is. Bring a book, or a movie on your Kindle or Laptop, and your favorite snacks to save money. The train is my favorite mode of transportation when traveling .
