Amtrak Adirondack

Pros: The Conductor John and other staff made it very enjoyable. The Cafe Car gentleman was very nice. The scenery was great. Cons: Allowing passengers to get off at the Rouses Point Station for ice cream. The wifi was weak. Tips: We took the train after leaving the cruiseship in Montreal. It was a smooth trip and very reasonable compared to airfare for our family of 5.
