Pros
It was an adventure....
Cons
More info about seats; it was confusing on where to go once we got on the train! Downstairs, or upstairs...? Female attendant was a bit crabby...like she had answered the same questions numerous times and she was sick of repeating herself!
Tips
Sit back and enjoy the ride; watch the people and scenery! Make new friends with the other passengers, you might make a new friend!
