The crew was very hospitable and welcoming. Quick to see areas where passengers could use some assistance(i.e. luggage)
The train experienced delays because it had to cede to freight trains. I have experienced this on several trips. Passengers sometimes miss connecting trains as a result.
It was chilly on the train because of the airconditioning. It would be wise to bring a sweater or something to keep you warm.

I like how smooth the overall experience is with the train. On the other hand, as with any form of mass transit, when someone needs extra attention, it slows things down for everyone. I resent how in general almost all companies communicate as little information to pass...More
Being more insistent, hurry up we gotta go, stop dicking around. You're not going to hurt anyone's feelings, train has to get going, that's all there is to it.
