    As a frequent Amtrak rider everytime I ride these trains there is always issues with their traveling times with consistent issues. Traveling from Lakeland Florida to Alexandria Virginia it has been 24hrs and no where near New York City where our destination supposed to be this is the worst service ever. Who knows at what ti.e they will arrived at New York Penn Station.
