Hi I'm Amanda-Beth I don't know what they where thinking I go by Amanda. I took few short distance rides on Amtrak as kid doctors appointments mostly. Why we took the train no clue we had car access. It just seems looking back like silly distance to take a train. I now live in Indiana last year I found out taking off in plane my body disagrees with that. Not simple ear popping. But it seemed like akward distance to take train. However I like trains so this year taking train down to Disney world next month. 36 hours down longer back up because 2 hr layover down 8 he layover way back up layover in DC. This is distance to time to me that makes sense to take a train and I don't have to worry about what my body needs to do when.i got roomette for all 4 trains.
