You would think that with all the money they charge for tickets that they would have a decent station. At least Greyhound has a decent building to wait in that is structurally sound. But I guess that the gross stations are about what you can expect to get from something run by the government.

Well, you can always go Greyhound. They serve that route.

Or you could get a train from New Orleans to Atlanta, stay overnight at a hotel at your expense, and then catch another train from Atlanta to wherever you want to go to in Florida. Or you could go down to your nearest Flying J Truck stop and go talk to the truck drivers and maybe you could find one of them willing to give you a ride down there for free.

But first you need to make sure that they aren't going to get mad if you don't want to accommodating to their needs. You don't wanna get picked up by a truck driver thinking that you have a ride to Florida, only to get put off on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere when he finds out that you don't want to do anything with him, like has happened to me more times than I can remember.

You should have just taken the trip anyway and hung out and slept in the New Orleans and Washington train terminals. If security had tried to roust you, you could have just showed them your train ticket and explained that you were sleeping in the train station because you didn't have enough money for a hotel.

You could have looked upon it as being an adventure. Surely, it would have been more comfortable than sleeping in your seat on the Greyhound Bus.

Amtrak in Williamsburg, Virginia - Website doesn’t work

Tried checking train ticket prices on their website. Spent some time trying a bunch of different things to get it to display train options, but it just brought me back to the same page. Finally gave up and booked a plane ticket instead. Probably cheaper than Amtrak too. Amtrak is worthless

Amtrak - Employe driving

Why is it every morning driving to work I get passed by two to three Amtrak trucks driving well over the spend limit.? I work for a good size company. That has GPS on their company vehicles. They know where the vehicles are and what speed they are traveling. I can only go five miles over the speed limit to conserve gas. My question is with Amtrak receiving tax payers money, why doesn’t Amtrak have something similar?

I'm still trying to figure out what your saying. You said you were delayed 4 hours, then in the next sentence you say you arrived less than an hour later than your scheduled arrival.

Doesn't make sense.

Also if you traveled by Amtrak before, you should know that delays are always possible due to freight train interference, which is not Amtrak's fault. If you scheduled a meeting to the Nat's *** within the scheduled arrival of a train, that was not wise.
