Amtrak Lake Shore Limited

Pros: very cost effective. Cons: I had excellent exchanges with very nice staff and I had very curt exchanges with staff that seemed like they didn't want to be bothered. Tips: Leave yourself time for unforseen delays - it happened that my delay did not impact me at all - it actually was perfect timing for me to get to work. If I needed to be back earlier it would have been stressful.
