Pros
Not having to deal with traffic. First time I have been in the cafe car. Loved the scenic windows.
Cons
Was caught in a bad thunderstorm walking out to the very far platform. Would have been nice had the train been a little closer and maybe if we had been offered towels even paper towels to dry off with. I dripped water for 2 hours.
