Our final day of the fest saw the six of us riding the southbound Adirondack out of Montreal. Plenty of drama as we all had trains to connect with. US Customs messed us up at the border, and we never regained the lost time.
Mike H and Steve made their connection with the Lake Shore Limited in Schenectady, on their way to Cleveland and Chicago respectively. The rest of us arrived in New York 1 hour 41 minutes late. Amtrak reaccommodated us on other trains, since Piotr, Michael, and I missed our "guaranteed" connections on Regional 167.
Michael and I are at the Doubletree Newark Airport tonight, and still have a trip to Philly in the morning before getting to our car at Cherry Hill via NJT. Piotr took Amtrak 637 to Newark, and Jishnu caught his Midtown Direct train home after 10 PM.
