Easy to get on and off. Building is old, but it has character.
If you have time, the newsstand has interesting local sandwiches and candies.
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.
Don't bother ringing the bell at 4:45 pm as instructed cause ain't no one here.
No Café Car on Keystone trains to PHL, NYP. Plan ahead before you board.
This place is great. Friendly staff, clean facilities, positive law enforcement efforts. No vagrants, gypsies, or streakers.
The employees here are super.
They usually have only one ticket agent. Arrive early if you need a ticket!
Long lines to Pittsburgh
NYC train is always crowded. Get your ticket early and save money.
Train rides can make you sleepy! Make sure to keep wallets and purses covered and inaccessible while you take a nap.
Check out the model train display in holiday mode
If your trains here for a bit, run across the street to Pints!
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
Use the Quick Tic machines! Much easier and usually no lines!
Beat the rush down the stairs by using the elevator.
The shop here has candy for as cheap as 10 cents
A beautiful historic railroad station in the heart of a capital city.
Tip your redcaps!
Great snack bar, though not open 24 hrs. Friendly folks and good selection of food, reading material & other travel goods.
Bring food, none at the station
Stop by Spice Restaurant for lunch or dinner while you are in town or before you leave. Check in specials on Foursquare. Safe travels!
Harrisburg has an "I" in it.
The Keystone is always my choice over driving to Philly.
Avoid using the bathroom at ALL COSTS!
They need a Starbucks but this place is what an original train station is.
Quiet car is back in Harrisburg!
Amtrak employees are only assholes if you act like one towards them first. Don't do that and have an enjoyable ride.
If you're heading to Philly in the AM, stop and talk to Jordan Roberts. He's delightful.
Ask the engineer if you can blow the whistle
They have great Amtrak hats hanging above counter in the news stand.
