    Silver Service changes?

    I might have to run to Florida in early to mid July. I usually take the auto train but since I might have to travel solo I am thinking of the Slivers to save a few bucks, so this is good information to know. I read the both the slivers have their menus back. Did any of them receive the new...

    It’s not so far fetched.

    Silver Meteor to terminate at Jacksonville in 3/29

    Just saw this from Amtrak. “Silver Meteor Train 97 which will departed New York (NYP) on 3/29 will terminate in Jacksonville (JAX). No alternate transportation will be provided.” Wondering if they are planning to quarantine people from NY at Jacksonville?

    New NYP restrooms open, kind of nice

    Within the story is a hint why the bathrooms with be practically destroyed in a short while. The people whom they interviewed about the bathrooms were both non Amtrak passengers. A private bus cleaner and a Long Island Railroad commuter, whom has the LIRR bathrooms to use but chooses to uses the...

    Booking a reservation on Amtrak.com.....

    I have taken the AT round trip dozens of times over the years. I can tell you that there is no round trip discount. I have have always looked the the prices individually on amsnag and booked round trip. The prices are the same regardless. In regard to the original post, I just tried to book my...

    First time on Acela, what can I expect? (meals in BC?)

    FYI, I was able to use my upgrade coupons, so it’s first class for me!

    I’m going from NYP to Baltimore and back. Only 5 hours total.

    I thought the same thing so I called AGR and the agent said that paying the fare with a discount doesn’t apply and it’s only meant for the actual upgrade itself. I can’t upgrade until 12 hours before departure. Hope that’s true, I will find out soon enough.

    Thanks for the menu. I just noticed I had enough AGR points that I used for 4 upgrade coupons. We should be now traveling first class both ways.

    First time on Acela, what can I expect? (meals in BC?)

    This weekend my wife and I have to run down to Baltimore for a family function. Since we have pet issues we have to do the trip same day. Instead of driving we decided to try the Acela for the first time. I booked business class because of the NARP (RPA) discount but was not sure if first class...

    amsnag inactivity emails

    Thanks! Have not received any yet today. To answer an earlier question I last used it around 18 months ago for an Autotrain trip for last May. Funny thing is it never let me know about any price drops (which there were) don’t know the version, what ever was on the website at the time. Quick...

    Food in and around PSNY

    Depending on how much time you have and how far you want to walk, Hill County has some really great BBQ at good prices. It’s one of my all time favorite restaurants https://hillcountry.com/nyc/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Another derailment at NYP (7/6)

    Another NJT train derailed at NY Penn Station days before repairs are to begin. Not looking good for Amtrak. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/07/06/penn-station-derailment/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
