Phyllis, if your son can get him back to the New Haven rail station then it
looks like Mike's problems are solved. If he's not going to meet Colin in
Quakertown, PA, he can just ride Amtrak's "Northeast Regional" route and
go right into Aberdeen, MD, which is very near to Chris Smithson. This line
goes from Boston to Baltimore through Penn Station in NYC, so he wouldn't
have to even change trains.
I use the Keystone route from central PA to NYC, but I don't know this
"Northeast Regional", so can anyone on the list please advise Mike as to any
"kinks" he might encounter on this route?

Mike will take Amtrack from Boston to New Haven, Connecticut, where my son
will pick him up. I haven't looked further, so you are more knowledgeable
about the rest of Mike's trip. We certainly want to make his trip as easy
as possible, as it is a huge undertaking.

Subject: Re: train from CT to MD
Phyllis, Mike and Chris, if you go to the Amtrak web site and check out the
line called "Northeast Regional" you will see that it has several stops in
CT after leaving Boston, MA and then it goes on to Baltimore, MD. However
just before Baltimore there is a stop in Aberdeen, which is very close to
Chris. It looks like this train goes through Penn Station in NYC and this
way Mike wouldn't have to change trains plus stations. Phyllis could you
get Mike to one of those stations in CT? Chris could you pick up Mike in
