I wrote above she needed a car.

Since she the OP is apparently from India, I thought she may be having issues with English.

It isn't a far-fetched idea to take Amtrak to Philadelphia and backtrack to Mount Laurel. Not the most ideal, but doable if one prefers the comfort of a train for most of the journey.

As for Cornwell Heights, Aerules wrote that there isn't an Amtrak station between Trenton and Philadelphia. I merely wanted to point out that it was not true. It may not be a popular station but there is one. Service used to be a bit more frequent, but Amtrak cut it a few years back.

Going to Philadelphia and back-tracking to Mt. Laurel is a fine idea, but you can't do the back-track by train, unless you consider Cherry Hill as being close enough.

Yes, Cornwell Heights is in PA. It isn't in NJ but it is closer to certain locations in NJ than Trenton station would be. If I lived in Burlington, Cornwell Heights would be closer than Trenton.

I was suggesting Amtrak to Philadelphia then Philadelphia to Mount Laurel by NJ Transit bus. Then doing the reverse if necessary.

Bwynyc,

Regarding your comment:

"I was suggesting Amtrak to Philadelphia then Philadelphia to Mount Laurel by NJ Transit bus. Then doing the reverse if necessary."

You never said that, I did. I believe you meant to say that way back in the thread, but you wrote it backwards- that's why I said you were confused.
