    Exact time for 11 months out purchase?

    I called the AGR line, which must be why it didn't open until 4am Central. My agent was very helpful so I'm glad I went that route. The price I got at 8am was the same as what was listed when 7/2 tickets appeared at 2:15 Central. I ended up getting the Portland car and now that shows up as sold...

    Exact time for 11 months out purchase?

    Found out my own answer - they open at 4am Central. If I didn't have a cold and plans for tomorrow, I might stay awake another hour and 38 minutes. As it is, I'll take my chances with what's available whenever I wake up. Worst case scenario, I give up on July 2nd and wake up at 4am Saturday and...

    Do agents answer the phones 24 hours a day?

    I can see through the 30th on both Amtrak's website and AmSnag with exit at Glacier.

    THANK YOU! Staying up until 2am central seems more doable than getting up at 5am if they updated at 6! Trying at 11pm isn't bad for me, either.

    Yes, I understand that the bedroom is the only one with the bathroom included. At most, we'd get one of each of those.

    Did the reservations sometimes show up at midnight Eastern?

    Exact time for 11 months out purchase?

    I meant that if I search for 6 travelers, it will not ever give me information about family bedrooms because it thinks the 6 of us can't find in the only family bedroom on each train. It will not let me lower the quantity to 1 bedroom. Apparently if I search for 4 travelers, it gives me a more...

    When it says that youth need to be with adults over 18, does that mean in the room or with the same reservation? If they need to be in the same room, it becomes essential that we get a family bedroom, which is likely the hardest part of the reservation. My smaller two kids will be 10 and 6, both...

    Exact time for 11 months out purchase?

    I had been searching by saying 4 travelers - 2 kids and 2 adults - because otherwise it doesn't show me family bedrooms since there's only one family bedroom per train. We will only be traveling MSP to Glacier so I don't care whether I'm on the Portland or Seattle train. After AmtrakBlue said...

    I want to buy sleeper accommodations on the Empire Builder for the 4th of July weekend for my family of 6. I've been pricing tickets for the past couple days and by mid-morning the superliner bedroom and family bedroom options have sold out for the newest added day. We'll take 3 roommettes if we...
