Pros
I enjoyed riding the train home after our vacation. The Philly station was neat to see, and the staff was helpful and kind.
Cons
The rear car of the train was hot and uncomfortable. We moved up a car after checking with the guy running the Cafe. Left side of rear car outlets were not working and wifi was poor.
Tips
Long trips on a train can be uncomfortable and feel like they take a very long time. Better than bus but may be quicker way to travel. Was very senic and different though.
