Pros
I didn't have to drive
Cons
Fix your trains before they leave the station. We had a breakdown between Gary and Michigan. When train got back up and running, we had no AIR in our car and sweltered the remainder of the journey. It was until our stop in Battle Creek that the crew did anything.
Tips
Dress in layers and be prepared with a charging cord or a really good book.

Cons
I believe that communication between trains could be improved to reduce delays. Our train had significant delays due to freight traffic when we were ironically just arriving in our destination city, which was incredibly frustrating. It took nearly two hours just to get ...More
Tips
Take a train that is scheduled to arrive multiple hours before you need to be there just in case of delays, as they seem to be quite common.
