    Vaccine proof required for NYP lounge

    I think it’s the indoor dining requirement. Also... you should get the shot!

    Mask Mandate for Transportation Extended

    The route of the Silver Star is flat. The route of the Starlight has some serious grades!

    I can’t speak from current experience but that was never an Amtrak rule, I would often make dining car reservations when in the lounge. That was just an LSA making up a rule.

    Yes. At the beginning of flex I could get a container of fruit from the LSA and also help myself to fresh fruit that was out by the tea.

    Passenger mistaking someone else's room for theirs

    I have done the same thing once in Union Station. I found the right roomette... but in turning around to organize my rolling suitcase and laptop bag I just got turned around and ended up in the roomette across the hallway.

    The flex breakfast was my favorite flex meal. I could at least eat Cheerios, yogurt, and a piece of fruit and feel ok about that life decision. The plastic salt filled TV dinners? No thanks!

    Free alcoholic drink included for dinner for sleepers

    If a coffee shop can sell them on the flavor of syrup they don’t need to have good quality coffee! :) If it’s really good espresso all I want is an Americano, if it’s good espresso I’ll take a little cream, if it’s bad espresso poor in the syrup! Haha.

    Thanks so much! This is the most comprehensive report on the new menu items that I have seen. Looks like we are back to a decent standard of dining car service and the desserts haven’t looked that good in several years!

    There shouldn’t be any capacity issues. It’s only sleeping car passengers allowed in the diner and many won’t want to eat in the diner anyways. Without the dorm cars I don’t think any trains have more sleeping car passengers than could be accommodated. Maybe the empire builder if all rooms...

    Were they skipping tables as well? 4-5 seatings seems like quite a few.

    I’m guessing that with only sleeping car passengers everything would work out on its own. Some solo travelers will want to eat in the diner, some will want room service. Some couples will want to eat in the diner, some will want room service. How many rooms do the LD trains have in service...

    A Further thought on this... I shouldn’t be forbidden to eat in the dining car because I am traveling by myself. It should be first come first serve for private table reservations in the diner. These types of crazy rules made up by amtrak staff is why I stopped traveling with Amtrak as much...

    Ah! Yet another rule made up by Amtrak staff.

    Los Angeles COVID Form and Complimentary Drinks?

    Coffee, Tea, Juice. They also have sparkling water now or at least they did last time I rode. (La Croix).

    Yes - a few days ago I photographed the Chief in New Mexico and there were people seated in the dining car having lunch.

    Ugliest and Soul-less Amtrak Stations Used in Metropolises Today

    I remember walking to it but maybe I was on the other side of the tracks? I wasn’t catching the train. I rode the light rail and just walked around downtown.

    Looks pretty nice from the outside. (Photo not mine - grabbed it from a google search.)

    I’m not sure how this makes sense financially either. You still have to staff the train. Having multiple food delivery operations can’t possibly be cheaper than operating a central commissary that loads all of the trains.
