Pros
Spacious seating, outlets so I could keep my laptop and phone charged, nice staff, and nice scenery.
Cons
WiFi connectivity was nonexistent in certain parts of the trip, but that was mostly due to being in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Also the trip was delayed 2 hours due to engine failures in Philadelphia.
Tips
Get food fast from the cafe cart since they ran out of many options towards the halfway mark of the trip. This would’ve happened sooner had Amtrak not offered a second train to Harrisburg which 90% of the travelers left for instead of waiting the delay out.

Pros
I enjoyed riding the train home after our vacation. The Philly station was neat to see, and the staff was helpful and kind.
Cons
The rear car of the train was hot and uncomfortable. We moved up a car after checking with the guy running the Cafe. Left side of rear car outlets were not working and wifi was poor.
Tips
Long trips on a train can be uncomfortable and feel like they take a very long time. Better than bus but may be quicker way to travel. Was very senic and different though.

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.
