Pros: The train was clean, comfortable, and stress-free. The restrooms were spotless! Tips: Try the train for long-distance travel. No standing in long lines for security or boarding. Seating is comfortable and spacious, and the cars are spotlessly clean. Pros: The train was clean, comfortable, and stress-free. The restrooms were spotless!
