Amtrak Keystone Service

The train station was ridiculous to figure out , I asked the septa workers if I was standing in the right place to get my train they say yes.. only to find out an hour later I had been in the wrong spot .. I go to the other side and no train with my train number ever showed up and I missed the Show I was supposed to attend
