I have booked for 4 adults to take the North Eastern train from Back Bay to NY on Tue Sep 9, departing at 11.21am
After doing further research there is a suggestion that maybe we would be better taking a taxi from where we are staying in Beacon St to South Station if we wish to sit close together.
I chose Back Bay because it was only a 15min walk.
I know that we have to queue in line at South Stn, we each have a suitcase, but I wouldn't mind using a redcap.
Then on older posts some have said that only the early morning trains are crowded and that there would be no problems with seat choice at that time.
What do you guys think?
