Pros: The opportunity to sit back and relax. Enjoyed the quietness. Not dealing with air travel frustrations. Cons: The windows were so dirty that it was very difficult to enjoy the scenery. When the sun shined on them it became impossible to see put. That was very frustrating and upsetting because it defeated park of the allure of train travel. Wouldn’t be nice to be contacted by a customer service representative. Tips: No.

August 27, 2023- Visiting familyLancaster to Philadelphia
Pros: Everything was great except. Cons: the ticket-lady, I got in on the wrong car (the cafe) and was struggling to move my bags through to get to the passenger car along with another lady in the same predicament. The train staff yelled at both of us-“You can’t put your bags here!)” We were clearly in process of moving them the whole time, but both of us had big bags! It was ridiculous; she could care less and just took the opportunity to be nasty, which was absurd. It would’ve helped to have better instructions about which car to get on, cause in front of the cafe was business, and I didn’t know which car would be coach-which direction to walk on the outside or the inside of the train. Did my best and didn’t get left…,. Tips: Pay attention where to stash your bags and how to know which end of the car your stop allows you to get off at. If you have multiple bags, it is not easy, and there could be more signs or information.
