Service was great, not too happy about the sick girl infront of me coughing and blowing her nose during the entire trip

Erick L.8 March 2024

It was a nice quiet ride but my feet were so cold for 4 hours. I had boots on too.

Lynn T.20 February 2024

Non excusable delays due to poor management. For example, train 41 on Nov.08 took off ar 5:55 am and everything went fine, but at the end there was 35 mins delay arriving. Also, 48 train evening had one hour delay at the end all again for stupid resean called feazing rain. Believe me all comes to poor maanagement.
