Trip to Boston

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a trip to Boston via an Amtrak regional in either December or January. Has anyone done this trip before and if so what can I expect?

I live in connecticut,so this is what I can say,when you get to New Haven you will be sitting there awhile as they take empty cars off the train,and if you happen to be in one of them they will tell you to move to another car(only some trains do this),but other than that you stay close to the shoreline in connecticut,and near the back roads of it. So I say thats its a decent ride,but during those months it could be hell we all the people moving around.

I'm not too sure about where Amtrak lets you off in Boston, but whenever I go down I-93 off the Zakim, I pass the Amtrak engine houses. Its also a large terminal for the Red Line; They usually have either one or two GP40MC's or F40PH's lined up there. The Boston Engine Terminal is also very close by (on the other side of the 93 tunnel and the Zakim Bridge.)

Amtrak leaves you at the South Street Terminal in Boston.
