Train is a nice way to travel. Price of ticket was great.
Amtrak could be more timely.
Don't have a close connection; we were an hour delayed due to repairs on the track. There was WiFi but hardly any service for good part of the trip from PA to NYC.

We could talk and really enjoy the scenery without having to worry about any traffic or finding a place to park when we got to NYC.
To be honest...NOTHING! We had a choice of times to leave and get there. No hassles.
Yes plan ahead and it is very convenient and saves money and time too.
