Last Tuesday on I was taking the 12:35 out of downtown when a School group from Kenosha that was on a field trip came on. They let them use one of the closed off cars, has any come across a school field trip using Metra before? Thanks

Our second grade class rode Amtrak LSL Elkhart-South Bend long ago, and they kept us in one place. There was no wandering around and it was a 30 minute ride - more time on the bus getting to/from the stations.

Back in the day, toward the end of service, there were a number of field trips on the PATrain between Pittsburgh and Versailles. I think you could have an exclusive occupancy car for something like $100.
