Amtrak Silver Service

Pros: Quick, from NYC to Baltimore. Would do it again. Only part that wasn’t so great was the Baltimore Penn station. Waiting area has no outlets to charge phone. Otherwise it was all good. Cons: Improve the waiting areas to wait for trains in Baltimore. Pros: Quick, from NYC to Baltimore. Would do it again. Only part that wasn’t so great was the Baltimore Penn station.
