One-Liner Wednesday – Consideration

Never had a problem on SNCF trains. Why dos AMTRAK not look around the World?

No Facilities

Last Friday, I settled into a nice comfortable seat on AMTRAK’s Vermonter, getting ready to enjoy a six-hour ride home from Washington, D.C. I take the Vermonter because it’s a through train to my destination, meaning that I don’t have to change trains in New Haven, CT. Trust me, that’s huge. That means I can plug my laptop into an AC outlet, connect to the free WiFi and work, read and write.

Until someone in front of me puts the seat back.

Actually, AMTRAK seats aren’t too bad. There’s enough legroom to adjust, if the seat comes back slowly. If the seat comes back fast and unexpected, well, the diagram says it all.
