Off to the Great White North!
I'm now rolling along in Northeast Regional 164 on the first leg of my Canadian Circle trip. Changing trains in New York for a ride up the Hudson Valley on the Ethan Allen Express, and then spending the night in Albany. Omorrow morning it's the Maple Leaf to Toronto.
The train left B-more on time, and we're now rocking through northeastern Maryland at full speed, but when we get to New Jersey, this train becomes something like a New Jersey Transit Express, stopping at Trenton, Princeton Jct., New Brunswick, Metropark, Newark Airport and Newark before it rolls into New York. The trip is almost 3 hours! Still faster than driving, though. I'll have a 1:30 layover at Moynihan. More than enough time to get an authentic NY pastrami sandwich at the new Pastrami Queen in the food court.
