Pros: Trip was outstanding ..except for: No dining service (a prefab snack from vending machine is not food!!!) No lounge car.. And the station on Marshall is absolute horror..the historical group there spent zillions to establish a museum that is never open and awkward to get to. In process they ruined a perfectly good rail station. Cons: Provide handicap access and reasonable access for passengers with luggage or children. Tips: Write your congressman and demand this station provide access for handicapped. Wish place to send pictures of the horrible access stairs.
