I love the ease of ticketing and boarding!
The train interior isn't always super clean, and is a little dated. The legroom was kind of cramped.

The station and staff and Lancaster were impeccable and attentive.
Train staff was very curt and gruff. Full train made sitting together impossible. Ideally, would like a truly reserved seat, rather than open seating.
If boarding in Lancaster, let them know that trains are heavily booked but seats open up at the Philadelphia 30th St. Station.
