I’m sure there are circumstances in which Amtrak’s midnight (or thereabouts) train through northern Ohio is more convenient than just driving (or for that matter, taking the MegaBus or one of its cousins) where you need to go, but I haven’t encountered them yet. Having to share lines with (and give priority to) freight trains run by the railroads that own the track means the train gets here when it gets here, and never mind what the schedule says.
