May 2016: The most comfortable and economical way to travel to Albany, NY from Hampton, VA is on Amtrak. It took all day, and we changed trains in New York City to get there. After spending a day at the Slater Museum, we spent the night in Albany then traveled back home the next day.
Our friends, Bob and Jan Moritz were interested in accompanying us so we drove to meet them in Richmond, VA to begin our trip there.
Nice supervisory Amtrak engineer who oversees training/competencies of engineers

Some scenery along the route
Several stations we went through — they all looked different
Changed trains in New York’s Penn Station both ways
Had to watch the boards carefully for gate and departure information
Memorial Day weekend fireworks
We ate in the dining car — food was good
