By the way, NEC fares seem to be moderating. I saw a Baltimore-Washington advance purchase coach fare at $8, that's the same as a MARC fare. There are lots being offered for $15. When I was working, the fares could be as high as $30. I booked an Acela trip to Boston that cost $125, in the past it's been at least $160. My last trip to Philly was in the low bucket ranges of $35 - $45, I've seen Northeast Regional coach fares as high as $80 for the 90-mile ride.
