in your neck of the woods, I have ridden the entire Needham Line for commuter rail as well as the Attleboro, but on Amtrak. Getting to subway, without realizing it, I have ridden a lot of the Orange Line. Forest Hills to Back Bay(been seen from any train in the cut. On the subway itself, I have ridden to N. Station. I have ridden the Red between S. Station and Harvard. Next up in the Boston area will be a trip on the Downeaster to Portland as well as a few commuter lines out of N. Station. I know the Downeaster travels most of the Lowell.

That's plain foolishness, he doesnt wanna be copped up on a train that is nearly 10 ft wide, but he likes to drive?
You need to talk some sense into him.
On another note, my dad also doesnt like to travel on the train because its too "slow", thats fine because i dont like the Superliner Family bedroom anyways!!!!
BTW, How old are you?
When can one travel by oneself on Amtrak?
