I recently spent a few days in New York State. Rail traffic is considerably busier than in Ontario and I found a great variety of rail operations. I was very impressed with Amtrak, despite the inevitable delays. Their printed timetable exudes confidence while VIA Rail's is a shadow of what it used to be. Whether this is illusory or not, I don't know, but Amtrak appears to a larger part of American life than VIA is in Canada. The best selling point for Amtrak is certainly the incredible leg room, why would you ever want to fly? I have started a new album to show some photographs from the trip, click here!
