    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.

    This place is great. Friendly staff, clean facilities, positive law enforcement efforts. No vagrants, gypsies, or streakers.

    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

    Buy tickets ahead of time. If ticket windows are open and you choose to buy your ticket on the train, they charge you more (depends on where you're headed). I paid $9 extra.

    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.
