Amtrak Northeast Regional

Pros: I just liked going. It was a "dry run" for a trip I am taking in Feb. And I wanted to know the route to the airport before I had to use it. Cons: More trains not needing a train bridge. Tips: Be patient about trying to schedule yourself from one part of the country to another. You have to do it in stages. I would like to go from Springfield Ma to Charleston SC. But I have to do SPFLD to DC and then DC to Charleston. That can be difficult to figure out. There doesn't seem to be an easy flow chart of what trains/companies to take.
