Which train from Philly to NYC and back?

Jump to last reply

We are going to visit family in the Philly area over Thanksgiving and would like to take a side trip to NYC for a few days. I am looking at the train schedule and there is a huge drop in price for the Vermonter train. Does anyone know why the Vermonter is so much cheaper than the Northeast Regional and the Acela Express? It appears to have the same amenities as both and is only about 10 minutes slower than the Northeast Regional. Unless there is a real compelling reason not to take the Vermonter I'm booking it and saving a couple hundred bucks!

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Best,
A
