WiFi - if there was any onboard it wasn't working at all so I had to use my hotspot on my phone which drained my battery.

Pros: Amtrak has completely remodeled & updated the passenger cars. The cafe/snack menu was great & tasted great. Toughest test: Coffee…..4.5 stars! Attendant cheerful, alert, & enthused. Cons: The railroad industry has 100 car trains……too long to fit on a passing siding. So even tho Amtrak has priority; we Had to pull over & wait. Tips: For me, the Uber option NOW makes going by Amtrak a complete solution.
