Yesterday for the first time I took the shuttle from New Haven to Windsor, CT. I was in a coach car that, on outside at the end, had the orange/yellow color with the black stripes. On the inside, half the seats faced one way, the other half the other way, meeting in the middle with a nice set of seats facing each other. A few years ago, I was in a Keystone coach car just like this. Are they the same thing? From the Metroliners, split up and sent to different places?
By the way, even with the holiday crowds, it was a much nicer experience than I expected--polite, organized conductors; comfortable seats; pleasant passengers--very restful after the Northeast Regional New York corridor. I will probably do this again if it is cheaper than the Vermonter.
