Pros
The station and staff and Lancaster were impeccable and attentive.
Cons
Train staff was very curt and gruff. Full train made sitting together impossible. Ideally, would like a truly reserved seat, rather than open seating.
Tips
If boarding in Lancaster, let them know that trains are heavily booked but seats open up at the Philadelphia 30th St. Station.
