Pros: The scenery was fantastic and the train ride itself was very enjoyable. Very easy. Cons: The train ended up leaving over 45 min late from Penn Station which was kind of a drag especially because we were waiting in line about 40 min before that. Tips: Get there early and get to the front of the line at Penn Station. It's kind of hard to find but worth it for the seating choice.
