Was hoping someone on here could let me know of any train stations along/near the AT, south of NY. I know of the following:
- Gainesville Georgia
- Lynchburg Virginia
- Harpers Ferry, W. Va

Any others? I really dislike the damn bus!

Harrisburg, PA is 15 minute drive/taxi/shuttle from Duncanon, PA where the Doyle is.

The trains North of Mason Dixon are much faster and more reliable.
