@kdfrawg I'm still in the bewildered stage. I honestly thought we were better then this.

@kdfrawg I think European railways in general put ours to shame, but then it's mostly a socialist hellhole of decent public transportation and health care over there. Ditto for Canada. ?

Amtrak is reasonably roomy, but the schedules are erratic because the tracks are mostly owned by the big freight railways like BNSF, so Amtrak trains don't have priority. I've never been to the UK but have had good experiences on the continent with SNCF and Deutsche Bahn.

I wish train travel was a better experience over here. So much nicer than being crammed into a flying cigar tube.
