    Bedroom vs. Roomette?

    I don’t know the difference, view wise. I’m in Car 9710, Room B. The two previous sleeper trips I’ve made, I have been in Roomette 1 and 2.

    Bedroom vs. Roomette?

    Well, I was supposed to take two train trips next year. One in January from ELT to Kissimmee and the other from Lakeland to ELT. I had to cancel because my major spinal surgery has been pushed back to January. Therefore, since I got all my points back for both trips, I decided to splurge and go...

    Amtrak COVID Policy (refund of points for cancellation)?

    I did see that; however it does not specify reservations booked with points.

    Amtrak COVID Policy (refund of points for cancellation)?

    Hi. I’m going to Florida next month on the Star. However, I am going to need another spinal surgery, so there is a chance I may have to cancel (again) 😢Can you still get all your AGR points refunded?

    Reserved Keystones?

    How does social distancing work on trains? Do they only have one person sit for each pair of seats? That’s how I’d do it; have each coach at half-capacity.

    Reserved Keystones?

    To get to PHL from Elizabethtown, I paid cash, whereas the Star trip I used AGR points. I noticed that on 664, I have a reserved coach seat. The portion of the Keystones from Harrisburg to PHL has always been “unreserved.” I’m assuming this is because of COVID-19? How does the seating work with...

    Silver Service changes?

    I’ve rescheduled a Florida trip for September 6-going from Elizabethtown to Kissimmee, FL. I’m guessing Amtrak is only operating 1 daily train to Florida at this time. I am on the 91 Silver Star, leaving PHL at 12:35 PM and arriving at KIS AT 10:44 AM the next day. I know that the Star was...

    When will Keystones resume?

    Hallelujah! Bad news is I’m having surgery on June 9 and will be out of commission until early July. If Disney World opens just its hotels in July, I might take a trip irregardless!

    When will Keystones resume?

    There is good news. Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh, is moving into the Yellow phase next Friday, as well as the central and western counties The Pennsylvanian serves. Why can’t Amtrak restart the service initially from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh? As I said, Amtrak could restart the...

    When will Keystones resume?

    Unfortunately, that is the truth. Berks, Northampton, Lebanon, and Luzerne counties in PA saw an explosion of cases in early April. This is because of the counties lying on the I-78 corridor; in the case of Luzerne, the I-80 corridor. Many people now living in Reading (a city of 90,000 people)...

    When will Keystones resume?

    Just found out: Wolf has extended “The Great 2020 Shut-In” until June 4 for all counties in the “Red” Phase. This includes all counties served by the Keystones. He did state some more counties would move to “Yellow” in the foreseeable future.

    When will Keystones resume?

    Wolf is (hopefully) going to start reopening the state May 8. It will probably start off by relaxing the shut-in (with precautions in place) for the northwest and north central counties. Philly will be the last place to open up. I know many people ride the Keystones between Harrisburg...

    When will Keystones resume?

    I’m just wondering when they will restart the Keystones again—at least the Harrisburg to Philadelphia portion. I want to hopefully take a long-distance trip to Florida later in summer, but would like to go from Elizabethtown.

    Will I Be Penalized For Canceling trip using AGR points?

    I am booked on the Meteor for 5/9/20 from Elizabethtown to Miami. However, my health has deteriorated since I made the reservation; I am going to need spinal surgery. Therefore, I will be unable to make the trip [emoji22]. I redeemed Guest Rewards points for this trip. Will they still deduct 10%...

    Food in and around PSNY

    When I did a NYC field trip by train in 2017, we ate here. The kids loved it!
