Amtrak Acela. DC-NYC.


We weighed all our options on transport to New York and our decision was the train.

Acela Express

First Class no less. Coffee and snacks in the First Class Lounge before boarding were pretty ordinary, but we only had to walk10 metres from the lounge to board.

On train…


Free Wi-Fi was a perk as wellIMG_0580Not that easy to take photos…IMG_0587Arriving in PhiladelphiaIMG_0594

Our trip took just under 3 hours. No stress. Penn Station was busy busy busy.

We finished our day with a Broadway show…Priscilla Queen of the Desert.


Attended and enjoyed the show in Sydney several times, and think the Broadway version is brilliant.
