    In the old days, they were used to hold any Clothing ( ie Robe, ) that you didn't want to sleep in. During the days that Baseball teams used to travel by Train, the Veterans would tell Rookies it was to put your arm in while you slept so it wouldn't get sore!😄( Rookies and Non-Starters always...

    Awful Trip on The Zephyr

    You should contact Customer Relations( not Customer Service) with the details about the lack of meals, Lateness of your Train and since you paid $800 for what's really worth about maybe $400, you should receive a Partial Refund or a Travel Voucher.
