nightmare Amtrak ride

Well, our train was scheduled to arrive in Boston at 8 pm last night, but we arrived at 3 am. Due to the storms, Amtrak could no longer run its train on its own tracks, so we had to take a commuter train. This commuter train also could not continue, so we all had to pile onto busses. It gets worse. Suddenly at the University Park Station, the busses let us off down the road, so you see a mass of people with luggage walking about five minutes to the station where we got on a train and headed to South Station. Needless to say, we're pretty pissed.

To add insult to injury, Judith's wallet was stolen sometime in the confusion of transferring trains. We're going to call Amtrak to ask for a refund. Ugh. Such horrible service. The least they could do was let those busses go to South Station... having to change there to another train is just unacceptable.
