Pros
I just love the train in general. Smooth, on time, and I get to see different parts of Missouri that I normally wouldn't see.
Tips
Plan an extra hour. Trains are generally slower then cars, BUT so worth it. A nice leisure ride, and everybody is always happier. Sit in the viewing car at least once.
