Amtrak Silver Service

Pros: I enjoyed how spacious everything was I didn’t feel like I was on top of the person I was sitting next to. I definitely would say that the staff were super nice and helped me find out where I was going. Cons: The only thing that could be improved is when announcing the stops to speak a little bit louder, just so everyone knows where they are going and when their stop is the next one. Tips: Bring a charger and headphones and you will be set. Also bring a hoodie if you get cold easily.
