    How much advance notice given when changing AGR redemption levels?

    What is the history of AGR point increases.? Anyone know how often it has happened in the past? Any particular things that may predict or influence the rate increase? I just about have enough for a 3 zone roomette, hate to see the points increase before I can use them at current levels.

    Can you leave upper bunk down during day in Roomette?

    The way you want your room set up anytime of the day or night does not depend at all on the SCA wishes. You can have the bed down whenever you wish, you PAID for it. It is reasonable that the SCA wants to make the room up before the final destination.

    Late Zephyr

    probably not a dinner from the full menu, but something like "lite dinner" or "Amtrak stew"

    CZ to CL

    I would say if the CZ is more than 2 hours late plan on a night in CHI at Amtrak's expense and traveling on next days train, problem is if you are ticketed for a Sleeper on the CL you won't be guaranteed a room on the next day, just transportation.

    The Cascades Route

    these trains are always close to or sold out, I find the 1/2 seating in business worth the extra $ if traveling alone. Not sure of the price difference, I'm sure it's bucket pricing but I still doubt you could buy a nice dinner in SEA od PDX for the price difference.

    SouthWest Chief with 12 yr old

    are you traveling coach or sleeper, this could make a big difference with a 12 year old. I would recommend a roomette or bed room if you can afford it.
