My experience with Vermont Rail centers around two things: Summer service to the Montshire Museum: An absolutely fabulous 1/2 hour trip to Norwich Vermont with good scenery, a banjo player doing sing-alongs and an old-time flavor.

I took the Vermonter from Washington DC to White River Junction VT. About 10 hours and only $90. You can't drive it for that. Some great scenery too.

Seats was clean, food was acceptable, staff were polite and often friendly. They have power available for laptops. Regularly did 5 hour trips to see girlfriend at the time. Only complaint is that on occasion the speaker systems on the trains were not audible or full of static.

The Green Mountain Railway took us up the Connecticut River in October, glorious colour and scenery with a stop at an organic farm and market. There was plenty of room on the train and easy to shoot photos. Food and drinks were available on the train which is an entrepreneurial venture being done well.
