    Empire Builder 2022 Outrageous Bedroom Fares

    I could not find the San Francisco to Chicago fares, but did get comparable Coach and Pullman fares for Colorado Springs to San Francisco to be $41.88 and $52.68. However I am confused by the "FARES FOR OTHER STANDARD PULLMAN ACCOMODATIONS" but know someone can explain this.

    Downeaster questions

    Amtrak Footware Requirement?

    So, what can happen if a passenger is wearing, say, Adidas Sliders or Kenkoh sandels, with no other foot-ware in luggage?

    First look at Moynihan Train Hall

    Time-wise, what can two people with two small bags reasonably see of Moynihan Train Hall and the lounge during a [scheduled] 1:25 transfer from Train 93 to a roomette on Train 97 Silver Meteor?
