A free drink maybe?
Tips
If you do not want to sit with someone else or have 2 or more people, scope out the whole train for free seats! Also be aware that there is a quiet car.

I bought my tickets on line and I didn’t understand the pricing. One ticket was $120 to NY and the return was $60. The tickets said they were reserved coach tickets. There is no reserved coach on the train to or from Lancaster and NY on the trains I was on.
