Acela Trip : New York Penn To Boston Via First Class

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmNV5K86DuM

As you can see its Quite , Luxury for for only 90$ , although this week its 120$ , if you booked ahead its 90$ Amtrak added 70 Extra Trains this week , 34+ Acela's , after the 30th the NEC & Keystone line should return to normal , meaning that you can go to the Stations on that same day and purchase a ticket , although that is a little pricey, if you order 48hrs before. Amtrak Extended its sweet 45$ Deal intill 1/5/2010

I know that my oldest hostbrother, who lives in NYC always goes to DC every weekend by train and it will only cost him about $20. His girlfriend lives in DC so that's why he is going there every weekend.

I guess it's either the railroad lobby or the public transport lobby the ones behind this, they've always hated highways but they've taken it to a whole new level by attacking our HQ.

We shall not tolerate this insolence.
