Saint-Lambert to New York

Pros: Definitely for anyone who typically takes road trips and just wants to sit back for a change and enjoy the ride and scenery. Cons: Provide a travel port that shows from and to for the closet trains into Penn station. I had 2 hrs of unnecessary travel time that could've been prevented if I had planned wisely. Tips: The dining room cart is basically stocked with chips. cookies, beverages and limited sandwiches. I suggested packing a mini carry on of snacks, drinks and sandwiches to least the trip going.
