Detroit to Chicago via Amtrak - Anyone with Recent Experience??

Jump to last reply

Hi.
DH and I will be traveling from Detroit to downtown Chicago at the end of August with our sons age 10 & 12. We're debating on taking the train rather than driving. (Cost of tickets for the 4 of us is about a wash with the cost of parking and we don't expect to need our car while in Chicago.)

DH is reluctant to take Amtrak due to a bad experience many years ago (very long delays, malfunctioning toilet on board, etc.). I am sitting on the fence...The convenience of being dropped-off at Union Station and not having to fight downtown traffic is appealing.

Does anyone have recent experience with Amtrak, or better yet, from Detroit to Chicago?
What are the trains like?

Thanks in advance!
