Pros: It was about 1.45 hours from NYC Penn's Station to Poughkeepsie, NY. Amtrak is a mask zone everywhere. That means, one must wear a mask, whether inoculated with the vaccine or not, at all times. Cons: Wifi was sketchy due to dead zones. It worked...sometimes. Tip...

Pros: It was about 1.45 hours from NYC Penn's Station to Poughkeepsie, NY. Amtrak is a mask zone everywhere. That means, one must wear a mask, whether inoculated with the vaccine or not, at all times. Cons: Wifi was sketchy due to dead zones. It worked...sometimes. Tips: For bedrooms, do not expect two full grown adults to sleep on sofa. Unless you can get up on top bunk easily, you need to get 2 bedrooms that adjoin or 2 separate roomettes. Fyi...everything on the train is designed for small to medium build and height people.
