True to form, former Vice President Joe Biden boarded an Amtrak train to head back home to Delaware after the Inauguration Day ceremony Friday.

A C-SPAN video shows Biden waving to onlookers at Union Station in Washington, D.C. He then gave a thumbs-up, saying, “Back on the Amtrak!” before stepping onto the train.

The former vice president is famous for his affinity for Amtrak: He commuted to Washington, D.C., from Delaware every day by train during his 30-plus years in in the US Senate.
