I think Amtrak is secretly run by the auto and aviation industries with the sole purpose being to make any other mode of transportation appear superior to that of the train. Ugh, yet another looong and unnecessarily aggravating trip by train. I did have a wonderful weekend away, however, but both the train out and train back had problems. The one out of New York was a 1/2 hour late, not too horrible, but the one back into the city actually broke down and we had to hop onto another train out in the middle of New Jersey.
I think I’ll run next time, it’ll be faster and more fun.
