    Amtrak Website Interactive Diagrams

    If you ever want to see the dimensioned diagrams as linked in Amtrak Blue's post, the smart thing to do is make screenshots of all nine of them and file them away someplace. There's no telling when that link will quit working and the diagrams lost to us. Amtrak seems to keep a lot of useful...

    Will full service dining ever return to the Western trains?

    I suspect Amtraks only use of these posts is to transfer them to audio and play them as punishment to employees deserving such cruel and unusual treatment . They must?? What leads you to believe that?

    Orlando Station (vans available)?

    It might depend on what hotel you're going to. Call the hotel and ask about their shuttle service.

    Amtrak Hubs

    After slogging through all 70+ posts in this thread, I just had to ask: • If none are now designated as hubs, what are the consequences if Amtrak fails to designate any of its stations a hub? • If some are now designated as hubs, what are the consequences if Amtrak simply redesignates them...

    Consider the possibility that <gasp!> there may never be any additional info on the nature of the issue.

    Yes. Went up in May, huh? Been busy with other things and didn't notice the increase until about a week ago. Don't know. Not that I'm aware of. I've never seen one.

    Good & Bad News

    I'm quite sure that would be the lowest bucket and probably the fare prior to the increase a week ago. The current fare for 2 non-discounted adults in a Roomette NOL/DEM is $603, corroborated by the current low bucket fare for the whole route for 2 adults being $729 on 16 Dec. [And $729 -...

    Good & Bad News

    For one adult in a Roomette between NOL and DEM only found three different fares during any of the many 30 day periods checked and the lowest was $421. That seems about right for the low bucket fare because on a travel date when the low bucket is $505 for the entire route, it's $421 for your...

    First time for wife on Amtrak

    Now that I look at the routing a bit closer, I guess a sleeper on one of the legs would involve a train change at GRO and other complications taking it out the day trip category.. Only way to avoid that would be to head South out of CLT on the Crescent and return on the Crescent, but that would...
