This was our first trip with Amtrak on Oct 13th to Chicago. Left Syracuse at (9:30pm) and was to arrive in Chicago at (9:30am).
We arrived in Chicago at (9:30pm), that's right 24hrs on this train and the staff was brutal. No updates, no apologizes but they did offer a free beef stew after being on the the train for 18hrs ( this stew was a little beef gravy on a bed of rice). Amtrak was very nice at leaving us a email to our home after we were on the train for 3hrs letting us know things would be delayed. When your going on a 4 day vacation and Amtrak takes 1 day away from you it sure does leave a sour taste in your mouth.
But I feel for the people who missed their connecting trains and the response they got from the staff was they didn't care, too bad.
