    More restrictive ticketing non refundable no changes coming March 1, 2020

    So, question: If Amtrak is now charging $2,038 on their high bucket fare for #28 from PDX-CHI, what do you think that the "Saver Fare" would be if they offered one for this? :D:D

    Thanks for the replies. Yep, here is the official notice.., :(:( https://m.amtrak.com/h5/r/www.amtrak.com/alert/lake-shore-limited-track-work.html So it looks like 448 will terminate at Albany on Friday and Saturday nights and turn around and run as 449 sections from Albany to Chicago on...

    LSL Service Change Soon & Connection Options to #421

    Interesting .According to the Amtrak app, #449 is still being sold with coach, business class and sleeping accommodations for travel between Albany and Chicago on those dates..so the Boston section will apparently originate in Albany...my guess...odd

    LSL Service Change Soon & Connection Options to #421

    So, planning my trip still for out to Arizona at the end of March. Last night, I happened to be double checking my itinerary and so forth crossing my T's, and dotting my i's. As I looked over my Boston to Chicago portion for any fare changes on the website, I noticed that it said that #449/#49...

    Bedroom Pricing...

    Good input, but see my above post on the Empire Builder #28 that I have also been closely monitoring and observing what you just said. Very rarely is the low bucket ever offered for #28 on a bedroom even last minute. Insanity. I bet that they just go unsold. Look at today's departure and the...

    Bedroom Pricing...

    I appreciate all of you taking the time to reply to this thread. On my return trip, I was considering taking the Starlight up the California coast and getting off in Portland and then taking #28 to Chicago. However, looking at bedroom fares for most days is the high bucket at $2,038. Even...

    Bedroom Pricing...

    Yesterday, the Zephyr #6 from Reno to Chicago on 4/22 was $1,161. Today? $1,937. Yesterday, the Zephyr #6 from Emeryville to Chicago on 4/22 was cheaper than that funnily enough at $926. Today? $1,915. Also, as a side note, I noticed that Enterprise rental car rates went up about $125 for...

    Status of Business Class on Lake Shore Limited?

    Can anyone provide an update on how #449 Business Class is looking on passenger counts? Heavy or light from Boston to Albany?

    New National Menu February, 2020

    Not to get off topic here, but I commented about the Sunset in the Gulf Coast thread and it seems ridiculous that there is no public interest in returning the Limited to Phoenix? The current station is some 30 odd miles south of Downtown Phoenix. I always thought that they diverted to Maricopa...

    Amtrak funding and committment to restore Gulf coast service

    Dumb question maybe but why not just return the Sunset Limited to the route like it once had previously? If not extending it to Miami or Orlando, terminate in Jacksonville? Call me nostalgic. My next wish is for actual passenger train service into Phoenix and not 30 miles south of it, and then...

    #421 Low Bucket Bedroom B to E possible?

    I have decided to rebook my trip out west from the Holidays to the end of March. Today I called Amtrak and made a reservation which was placed on a courtesy hold for 7 days. Coming out of Boston on #449, switching to the #49 sleeper in a bedroom in Albany on 3/27, spending the night in Chi-town...

    Does Amtrak Have Wrecked Superliner Sleepers?

    It's about time for some Superliner 3's, no??

    Trip to AZ moved to March..Boarding process at Chicago or New Orleans?

    Okay so assuming that I can manage my bags myself, what is the process from the Metropolitan Lounge in D.C. to train trackside roughly? If you could try and describe it just as a heads up. Crescent departs Washington at 6:30PM. I figure to arrive on #99 at 4:37pm or #161 at 5:33pm from...

    Trip to AZ moved to March..Boarding process at Chicago or New Orleans?

    I appreciate all of the replies to my thread. One of the things that concerns me is not so much the amount of people boarding or traveling (even though that could be sort of a problem) but also the possible weather issues that may crop up in March near or in Chicago or along that northerly...

    Trip to AZ moved to March..Boarding process at Chicago or New Orleans?

    Moved my trip out west to this March. Fares much better and won't have to have the hassle of the Holiday rush. So, there are one of two options for me to go: A.) Either Lake Shore Limited #449 switching to #49 in Albany to get a sleeper closer to the dining car, on to Chicago then Texas Eagle...

    Southwest Chief & Calif Zephyr Sleeper Car #'s?

    So, Cali Zephyr is good enough for a third sleeper but not my Texas Eagle? It's like the younger brother of an older brother whining to Mom about why the younger of the two cannot have the last pancake on the table...Lol :D:D

    #421 Sold Out on 12/01...Additional Sleeping Car Possible?

    I sincerely appreciate the responses from the members on the site here. I am unfamiliar with how I would go about booking one leg in one room, or coach from Chicago to St. Louis , or Dallas then the other pair? Hmmm..

    #421 Sold Out on 12/01...Additional Sleeping Car Possible?

    Been tracking #421 for the possibility of an upcoming trip to Arizona for 12/01, and 12/03. 12/01 #421 is now officially completely SOLD OUT. 12/03 soon to follow. Even #21 has no rooms left. Only coach seats on 12/03. My question is this: since there is still 3 or 4 weeks before departure of...

    10-20+% accommodation fare increase?

    ....which has still been a much larger than normal fare increase for this train...respectively speaking.

    10-20+% accommodation fare increase?

    I'm sorry, but I am new here so could you explain then to me how the same available bedroom would go up in price a small percentage if there are only a limited number of bedrooms available to begin with? My impression was that the bedroom on the LSL was already at high bucket because the other...
