Just thought those here, who might not have stumbled upon this CNN news story on their own, might want to read it.

Excellent feature, and she was honest about the adventure. Not a typical pax rail story these days, where negatives are often emphasized. Good mix in the photo gallery as well.

Yeah, usually whenever a large news outlet like that reviews any Amtrak service, they go off on every little thing.  :angry: It's refreshing to read one that doesn't  :)

A pleasant read on an Amtrak trip that I enjoyed on the Crescent from New York to New Orleans.  Many thanks to the OP for starting this thread.

I have enjoyed the Crescent from DC to New Orleans a couple of times and back. Good article thanks for posting.
