I'm considering a trip using the LSL Boston section, the Vermonter and the Adirondack for some time later this year. I'd like to do it counter-clockwise, having just ridden on the Adirondack northbound. Checking the schedules I found something that really astounds me and thought it would be easier to get a truthful answer here than talking to Amtrak. The LSL schedule shows it arriving westbound (sorry, not used to using train numbers) in Springfield at 3:18 PM. However, the northbound Vermonter is shown leaving Springfield at 3:15 PM. Can this idiocy actually be true and if so why?
