Pros: Train wasn't overly crowded. I enjoyed the food for purchase on the train. Cons: Train was 30 minutes late.. Which would not happen on the east coast lol. Tips: Don't make travel plans on a strict time schedule. My train was 30 minutes late arriving to Portland. I didn't mind because I gave myself extra time as a buffer. However I wouldn't recommend a tight schedule when booking because it seems this train is often delayed.
