    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...

    It looks like the closet next to the guy in the yellow shirt.

    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

    A friend and I booked adjoining bedrooms for a day trip (longer than 2 hours). We had other friends on the same train and we all congregated in the "bedroom suite." We tipped at the end of the trip.

    Booking Two Bedrooms for a 2 Hour Train

    From what I understand, more passengers are booking rooms on long distance trains than in the past. I would not be worried about taking up availability. I personally think it would be worth it to be safer and more comfortable - even for such a short trip.

    Orlando Station

    I was at the Orlando station a few weeks ago and I saw their sign. I assume they are still operating.

    Empire Service V.S. Lake Shore Limited from NY to ROC?

    Generally, the dining car is only available for sleeper passengers. If traveling on the Lake Shore Limited, will you be in a sleeper car? If not, I would take an Empire Service train in Business Class (which I have done in the past).

    I often see the Silver Star 92 on my evening walks. Some time in the last week or so, I believe I saw a Viewliner II deadheading.

    I was on 91 last week during lunch between Orlando and Tampa and I was the only passenger eating in the diner. Is Eric your LSA? If so, please tell him that Penny and Richard say hello!

    How Small is Bedroom A on Superliners?

    Generally, the sliding door between bedrooms is locked and should only be opened by an authorized member of the Amtrak crew. I have traveled in bedroom A and did not think it was too small for me (traveling by myself and I am fairly small). I think it may be tight for 3 people in bedroom A...

    How Covid safe are Amtrak sleepers?

    Because there are people with allergies and asthma that could be adversely affected by aerosol sprays, passengers should avoid "spraying" everything in sight.

    How Covid safe are Amtrak sleepers?

    I did not see any difference in the equipment on the Silvers. The equipment was old but not filthy, in my opinion.

    How Covid safe are Amtrak sleepers?

    I have a UV light and brought it with me on my recent trip and "wanded" the fabric seats before I sat down. I also brought clorox hydrogen peroxide wipes with me and wiped all non-fabric surfaces in my room and the table and booth in the dining car.

    Anyone been on LD trains recently?

    I just got back from a day trip from Orlando to Tampa and back on the Silver Star. The diner/sleeper lounge on 91 had some booths blocked off whereas all booths were available on 92. I was the only passenger eating an early lunch in the diner on 91 whereas, there were 3 passengers eating...
