I found it to be very clean and the staff was wonderful. "Southern Hospitality" at its finest. They picked up on my "Northern" accent and made sure that I was well informed about the area and even suggested some local restaurants that were well worth the visit. I felt safe and welcomed the entire time.
Hate to say "I told you so" but . . . Asst. Conductor Alfred (both ways) was the most unhappy unfriendly employee I've encountered in a while. Not 1 smile or kind word to anyone. Mr. Grumpy. @ $24/hr. one would think he would appreciate such a job. Good ride / uneventful / no stress ~ Except for screaming babies... 更多
Amtrak runs south from Memphis and New Orleans ... and North to Chicago. The station itself is interesting for its architecture. It is usually empty, however. A smaller station adjacent to the old station is the place to board the trains.
Not much to see.... but a beautiful old Building! We enjoyed a easy afternoon stroll after visiting the train Museum!
Pros: Beautifully renovated train station with excellent Train Museum downstairs. Get a tour from one of the museum volunteers! Cons: A bit out of the way, but worth the walk down South Main.
