Separate from the WiFi conversation: can someone 'splain to me why 48 has such a long layover in Albany? It arrives 2:50pm but doesn't depart until 3:45pm. Meanwhile, 448 doesn't dawdle at all, leaving at 3:05 for Boston.
I also have another question: I'm considering riding 448 from ALB to BOS on a PV trip in May (the trip starts on 281 from NYP - ALB). The intention is to get on 67 to come back down to Savannah via a connection to 89 at DC. The connection at South Station if on time is arrive at 8:01pm depart on 67 at 9:30. Normally, I'd say piece of cake, but 448's OTP is pretty poor for arrival; 5 times in the last month, it's been over that connection time late.
What I was thinking was, buy a BOS ticket to SAV, but potentially jump off 448 at Back Bay, and catch 67 there. 448 BBY arrival would be 7:53pm, catch 67 at 9:36pm.
It's not a valid connection (448 to 67) in the Amtrak system, but since I'd be PV'ing it, it's my risk.
Next stop, Willoughby
