  •  They do, I rode both. Amtrak on East coast is (0+ / 0-)

    often late, especially long distance trains. Boston-DC ones are not too bad.

    •  I have taken (0+ / 0-)

      the Boston DC accela often.  Always on time.  I'll allow that I may have just been lucky, though.  Any one have numbers?

      As for the snack bar and bathroom, the snack bar isn't exactly gourmet, but it's pretty cheap, considering.  I've never had to wait more than a few minutes for the bathroom. And yes, I've traveled with my children.  The trip was much better than the car.

      •  Acela I haven't seen late. Regional trains are (0+ / 0-)

        worse but not too bad. Long distance trains (e.g. NYC to Florida) can be 10 hours late easily.
