    Bedroom vs. Roomette?

    Bedroom vs. Roomette?

    In my experience, the B room on the Silvers has the couch facing forward, which is a big plus. I agree that you likely will be facing west. Enjoy your trip to Central Florida.

    Hotels at Amtrak connection points nationwide

    I stayed there last December and had an excellent corner room for which I paid for with a combination of points and cash. Great room, extremely convenient and not too expensive.

    Complimentary Drinks for Sleeper Car passengers?

If the LSA is not in the sleeper lounge, your SCA probably could get you hot water or ice. The cafe attendant may be able to provide you with hot water and...

    Apology Email for delay?

    A friend of mine received a similar email last week regarding a late train. It appears to be something new since I do not recall receiving such an email in the past and I have been on many late trains.

    Politicking across the Midwest/ Build Back Better Express

    Leo is my favorite. I have traveled with him more times than I can count. He has received many awards from Amtrak, including an Amtrak Customer Advisory Committee (ACAC) Customer Service Award about 5 years ago that I had the privilege of presenting to him. :)

    Booking Two Bedrooms for a 2 Hour Train

    I am far sighted and could not read the sign on the closet door until I enlarged the photo after Betty mentioned it. I was a bit confused at first because I forgot which direction I was facing. The first photo was taken of Bedroom D (my room) from the area of the window in Bedroom D. The...

    Booking Two Bedrooms for a 2 Hour Train

    It was the 2018 July OTOL fest on the Sunset Limited from NOL to Houston, days after Alan's passing 😥 and a few days before we saw Chris in SAS and then you in Austin.

    Booking Two Bedrooms for a 2 Hour Train
