I did not realize that the coach train was separate from the business train. Otherwise, the scenery was great, the passengers quiet, and the snack bar man very polite. Just a little excitement at the beginning.

Overall a good experience but I would have appreciated a cleaner bathroom without wet sticky floors that smelled like urine.

Courtney P.November 17, 2022

The Amtrak train was late and at the end delayed >40 minutes. No word information from the staff, no apologies whatsoever, as if such delays are normal. Frustrating!
