    Amtrak dining

    I’m not sure either. It’s gotta be for the Crescent, but why not base them out of NOL or NYP? It’s a bit of a stretch, but maybe they are trying to pick up some fresh out of culinary school chefs from Johnson & Wales here in Charlotte.

    Lake Shore Limited - running Superliners now?

    I should have screenshot it the other day. The site was showing the Crescent running Superliners breifley. It's been corrected.

    Crescent yes, but middle earth will probably freeze over before the Carolinian ever sees traditional dining.

    Amtrak dining

    We'll be taking it from CLT to NYP. We'll get breakfast and lunch. Last fall when we were on the Crescent, we got to have our flex meals in the cafe car. They shutdown the cafe car to coach passengers, for about 2 hours. Both microwaves running non-stop heating up flex meals for us sleeper...

    Amtrak dining

    In less than two weeks, we'll be on the Crescent. Almost have myself talked into the microwave version of the french toast. lol. As far as communal dining is concerned, we enjoy it. Have met some really cool people, and some head cases too.

    Amtrak asks TSA to start screening rail passengers

    I don't like it either. But I do have to ask, I wonder how many people currently ride Amtrak, that happen to be on the no-fly list? Legit or otherwise? Probably a small number.

    The northbound Crescent typically refuels in Charlotte. I'm not sure about the southbound Crescent.

    Connections missing from Amtrak reservation system

    I sometimes have to use the multi city option when booking CLT to WBG. Other times booking that R/T the normal way works fine. Using the multi-city option, Amtrak clearly states to pay attention to allow enough time between connections, and that when using the multi-city feature, connections...

    High sleeper fares on the Crescent: why?

    We have a trip on the Crescent, at the end of April. When I booked our roomette CLT-NYP, almost a month ago, we got it for $430. However lately when I check the same travel date, the price, from one day to the next varies from $580 to $680.

    IIRC, when they did the last promotion, I didn't get the email until 3 days after it started.

    How reliable - or not - is Greyhound?

    I've ate a lot of chinese food in that neigborhood.

    How reliable - or not - is Greyhound?

    We used to have a couple of asian bus operators here in Charlotte. $25 to NYC was a common price. After one of them had a horrible accident in Richmond VA, that was the end of that. If I understood correctly, the state of NC passed some legislation. No more telling customers to meet the bus in...

    Amtrak dining

    I’ll be on the Crescent again at the end of April. Roomette. I’ll bring some high quality snacks with me. Back in October I brought a small cooler with me. I shared my stash of caviar and champagne with my fellow sleeper passengers. Gotta do what ya gotta do to make the whole experience palatable.
