The seats were comfortable and the train ran on time. we were able to get seats facing each other for my family. Train staff were friendly and helpful.
Ability to reserve seat numbers for families travelling together to avoid the stress
Use redcaps where available or Amtrak staff to help you get your family on board. They are worth every cent.

People talking on their phones for lengthy periods of time.
It would be nice to have the quiet car identified sooner to avoid the phone talkers.
