Pros: I enjoyed the comfortable seating and the ability to see the areas I was passing through. Cons: I found it impossible to understand the announcements made on the train. Since I could see the speaker it was very frustrating not to be able to hear him. I think the speaker system must have been faulty and frankly that's an important thing for people to be able to hear. Also there was some mechanical issue that caused long delays. Tips: Pre-check your largest pieces of luggage. There is no room for storage of large luggage on the train.
