Amtrak Northeast Regional

Pros: Was especially very pleased with how friendly and welcoming several staff were on my return back to Connecticut. Traveled up the Northeast passage from NYC and could not have been more content with how funny and honest Amtrak staff were. Five stars. Cons: Cleanliness in the restrooms. Tips: Have your tickets READY. For the sake of everyone, and so we can all leave on time together ! :P.

Amtrak Northeast Regional

Pros: Very good leg room for coach and seats were comfortable. Cons: The trip home was overcrowded and noisy. Would also be super helpful to keep lights off at night so passengers can sleep. Tips: Overall, it's a great way to beat NYC traffic and find your way to the heart of the city.
