Overall ok, although annoying that ticket checkers onboard allowed some people to sit in places that others got moved on from

We ended up being almost 2 hours behind once we got to DC. I’d have been more understanding but my friends traveled north to see me and had the same problem. 1 1/2 hours delayed. This seems to be a regular occurrence rather than an isolated incident. Schedules are made as a suggestion.

Was a nice trip but please next time fix the water in the bathroom so we don't have to share one bathroom amongst plenty of people

Very nice cars with roomy seats. Very quiet train and their toilets are much bigger than airplanes. They also had a snack bar. Much better than an airplane and having to go through security.

Very nice ride. On time except for one incontinence. Our train hit a truck that tried to cross the railroad tracks in front of the train. This caused an hour delay non of which was the trains fault.
