There was plenty of room to stretch out and nap, the train was on time
There wasn't anyone around to ask questions about what to do or where to go. Traveling with an elderly and disabled person was very, very hard. There weren't any red-hat drivers around and we had to walk the entire length of the train before I found someone to help us.
