Amtrak Hiawatha

Pros: My seat cushion was not attached to the seat, but wasn't enough to make us move. There was plenty of space for our bags, we were traveling from Milwaukee to Glenview to have lunch and grab a plan to Connecticut. Our daughter takes this train regularly and recommended it. Cons: Thought it was all good. Tips: IDK I don't know if there was wi-fi? There was a place to plug our phones in!
