Pros: Spacious and comfortable seats. Cons: Announce cities and stops that are approaching.
July 28, 2023- Visiting friendsChicago to Wisconsin Dells
Pros: The train and staff were good no issues there. Cons: Lets pick up the pace of these trains. It’s offensive how slow american trains go. Why did we have to stop for 20 minutes to let another train pass? Build another track so two trains can go at once it isn’t rocket science. Maglev, high speed transit, every other developed country has figured it out and even plenty of non developed countries. If the trains moved at a reasonable speed ridership would sky rocket. No more excuses make it happen. Tips: Vote in a way that will yield a more efficient nation wide rail network.

Food options for passengers that did not make reservations. The snack options are limited. You need some options for people that don't eat fatty, fast foods. A cheese & crackers with fruit options like Starbucks has would be perfect.
