    Passenger mistaking someone else's room for theirs

    Definitely some missing pieces of information here, enough to make the claim hard to swallow, as is.

    PDF Ticket

    Like the others, I get mine instantly, often while I'm still on the phone with the agent. You can also see it in the Amtrak app, though the room number lately hasn't been there.

    Cardinal Sleeper Car luggage space

    Neither is loading the shower with bags or trash. I look for the attendant, but if he isn't there, the hall is where it goes. Complaints can go to him.

    Cardinal Sleeper Car luggage space

    In that scenario, vestibule or hallway.

    Cardinal Sleeper Car luggage space

    If I don't see the attendant in the vicinity, I just place the obstacles in his room. No one has complained yet.

    Amtrak Dining

    I was I was on 281 last month from New York to Utica, and certainly got lunch from the cafe car, and that was prior to stopping in Albany.

    Room Number on app?

    I was recently on four different trains, and observed that. I took a screenshot of the pdf for easy reference. I also had a printed copy of the ticket.

    WiFi on longer routes

    Two weeks ago I had almost no problems on the Crescent, Empire Service, and Lake Shore Limited, all viewliners. The Capitol Limited, a super liner, had no WiFi.

    Atlanta losing checked baggage service?

    OK, I finally get to add my experience with the current Atlanta baggage situation. Over the past several days, I’ve twice started a post, but both times was waylaid before I completed the post. As I write this, I’m currently sitting in the Club Acela (that’s what the sign still says) in...

    Atlanta losing checked baggage service?

    Tropical Weather on Train Travel

    You won’t. They won’t stop a train mid route, when a hurricane is still a day or two away. They cancel scheduled trains at that point.

    Utica, NY station

    I am going from NYP to Utica soon, my first time in Utica. Upon arrival in the afternoon I will be taking a cab to Cooperstown. The next evening I will be leaving Utica for Chicago on the Lake Shore Limited. Any hints about the Utica Station, or getting a cab or Uber there? Thanks.
