I liked how comfortable it was and the train ride was smooth. I also liked that it wasn’t too packed.
You guys do a really great job! There was one guy on the train that brought his guitar and was singing/playing one asked him to stop, but he stopped about 20 minutes later, so it wasn’t bad.
Enjoy the ride:D
