    As you said the coach option is strange if the train isn't running. It would be far better if Amtrak adopted the ViaRail system and just redirect you to a different date when there is a connecting train. Or at least prompt you to try a different date.

    If I could see what you see I'd be happy. I tried reloading but it's there's still no choice bar on top like you have. I'm on a MacbookAir.

    When i try to book NY-SF in Feb it doesn't allow me a sleeper option for Chi-Emy. Only NY-CHI. Then it shows just coach. What's going on? It also doesn't show price until after I've gone through the whole trip. I'm not a novice and have been riding Amtrak since its inception in 1970. They seem...

    I see the same save for the second choice bar running across. I have to keep scrolling

    Why does one have to scroll down on the first page of Amtrak's website to book a train? Seems I have to view various promotions before I can actually book. I've been offline for a couple of months so this may have been discussed already. Thanks in advance.

    Schedules

    On the new website I cannot find the national schedule list anymore. It immediately asks for a specific trip.

    Amtrak app

    Thanks for the quick reply. This is true of the official Amtrak app for ticketing etc.? And if my iPhone is too old I,m out of luck? Because it wouldn't upload the newer version.

    Amtrak app

    I have yet another problem after being off line. My iPhone 5C will not update the Amtrak app. I tried to delete and reinstall but evidently the 5C is too old a version. That's fine but I can't even use the older Amtrak app version. I know the phone is ancient - all of 5 years old!!!!! - but is...

    Booking website

    It would't let me enter anything

    Booking website

    Another thing about new site is that I can't get the train status to work. Every time I click on it a blue line appears but it's not interactive. When I try to enter a train it reverts to original default. Anybody else experience this?

    Thanks. Missed that arrow. It's still another unnecessary step. Used to just post the times.

    Booking website

    I've been away from the Amtrak site for a few months. Now I see that it's changed their booking format. It seems that on a multiple train trip you can't see departure and arrival times for individual segments while booking. Am I doing something wrong? I like to know how much wiggle room there is...

    Silver Star flexible dining?

    The Meteor is about 4 hours shorter NY-MIA.

    Early boarding for irrop of City of New Orleans on March 20?

    Amtrak doesn't tell you that there is a 1:30 AM train when trying to book #59 on 3/20. You'd think in this circumstance the # 1059 would popup but because it leaves on the 21st it doesn't. Yet another poor way to maximize ridership.

    I hope your son and daughter-in-law really, really appreciate your efforts. I agree with Penny - ship out most of it.
