closer to 9 hours
yep, and that's if it runs on time. just about every time I've taken it or picked people up from the station it's been late.
trust me, I hate driving I-55 to memphis more than anyone else on here. the train is great for people who live in memphis coming to new orleans. gets to nola around 4pm, and leaves to go back around 2pm. but for those of us in nola trying to get to memphis, the schedule really sucks, especially for weekend trips.
I hate to be all "if this were Europe..." about it but seriously, it's pretty ridiculous what a pain it is to get from here to memphis. I'd gladly pay $150 for a r/t plane ticket, but usually they're at least twice that. meanwhile you can fly to atlanta, florida, any city in texas, and sometimes even chicago from nola for less than $150.
