    Easy to get on and off. Building is old, but it has character.

    Arrive a few minutes early to enjoy the train display in the waiting area. There is a convenience store with snacks and necessities of sorts, although the pickings are slim.

    No Café Car on Keystone trains to PHL, NYP. Plan ahead before you board.

    Train rides can make you sleepy! Make sure to keep wallets and purses covered and inaccessible while you take a nap.

    For a laugh, read Jack Kerouac's thoughts on Harrisburg, and the train station in particular. He spent a few nights there during his travels

    Amtrak employees are only assholes if you act like one towards them first. Don't do that and have an enjoyable ride.
