We had first class tickets for the train and we’re very comfortable. There was a complimentary small buffet of snacks both ways and complimentary soda and water. There were alcoholic beverages available for purchase right in the car so didn’t have to go anywhere to get anything. The PSA was very knowledgeable and friendly. She loved to tell stories about the area and seemed to love her job.
