Pros: The train is very relaxing compared to being on the highway, and it's faster. Cons: There is no customer service at the train station in Scarborough. The signage is not adequate. The train is 4 car6 lo g and the platform is really long. We had no idea where the train would stop on the platform which was really stressful. Fortunately, it stopped by where we were. Otherwise we would have had to run a very long distance in a short time period to get onto the train. Tips: Book way ahead and if you're prone to travel sickness make sure that you're in a forward facing seat.

Pros: Relaxing, pleasant, friendly helpful people, asking the journey itself very enjoyable. Cons: Like I said in the review of the review of the outbound trip, better visual identification of the car numbers on the outside of the cars. Markers on the platform stating where to line up for the different cars. Tips: Just be calm and patient Be respectful to others Enjoy the journey as part of your trip, relax and de stress from the hustle of bustle of every day life.
