    Viewliner II Part 2: Dining Car Production, Delivery, Speculation

    If you've ever ridden in a Superliner Sleeper and have used the upstairs bathroom, it's roughly half the size of a Rommette. I imagine Amtrak could fit two small but comfortable bathrooms in the space of a Viewliner Roomette.

    Viewliner II Part 2: Dining Car Production, Delivery, Speculation

    I'm confused. Don't all Viewliners (I & II) have 6 Rommettes per side, with both sides adding to 12 Rommettes total?

    Is Amtrak cancelling the 421 Texas Eagle/Sunset Limited route?

    Yeah I think this might be the issue. I'm trying to schedule in the last 3 weeks of January but it might be maintenance related.

    Is Amtrak cancelling the 421 Texas Eagle/Sunset Limited route?

    The LA - FTW portion is bookable (train 422) but the return FTW - LA is not (train 421).

    Is Amtrak cancelling the 421 Texas Eagle/Sunset Limited route?

    So I took this trip last year on The Texas Eagle/Sunset Limited, from Los Angeles to Fort Worth, and there's a possibility I might take it again. When I went to go check pricing, all trips for this train (422) are showing up as cancelled or not bookable. The train was technically the Sunset...

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    I have one final update to this story. The manager of the Texas Eagle (this is what he called himself) called me personally and apologized profusely. He gave me his work cell number and told me if I ever ride the Eagle/Sunset again and encounter a problem, to please call him. Amtrak Customer...

    Sumitomo/Siemens contract for 137 Cars (former bi-levels)

    The cars are ADA compliant with a 2+2 setup... those seats are gonna be TINY. As someone who rides the San Joaquins, I already hate them.

    amtrak humor

    821 Heartland Flyer was running late due to a track issue. About 3 hours. Passenger across from me was venting to someone on his cell phone. "I thought it was called the Heartland Flyer, not the Heartland Sit-here-and-do-nothin'!"

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    OP here. Called Amtrak. The Customer Relations Agent was abosolutely speechless as to why the LSA would say such nonsense. He confirmed Amtrak's website was correct in regards to meal times and I should've received meal service. They sent me a voucher for future travel. Seems this is a case...

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    Not to get super off topic but as someone who currently works in food service, I understand this feeling way too much. The second an employee realizes their employer does not give a damn about them, you get scenarios like this.

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    I'm goung to put this issue to rest on Monday when Customer Relations is open. I'm not angry, far from it, but I am curious on the official policy and what they'll tell me.

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    @Cho Cho Charlie *Again*, the train has a scheduled departure of 2:10pm. According to Amtrak's website (and ignoring the Texas Eagle fan website) latest boarding time to receive a meal is 2:30 pm. I boarded the train at 12:45 pm.

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    Turns out the person who denied me service was the LSA.

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    Man I knew something was fishy. I'm not hungry so no biggie but Customer Relations will definitely be hearing from me.

    "Lunch isn't included" (in fare on 21 from Fort Worth)?

    So I just got on the southbound Texas Eagle, Train 21, in Fort Worth. It got here fairly early at around 12:45. I have sleeping accommodations and headed to the Diner for lunch. I asked to be seated and the attendant asked me if I just got on. I stated yes, and he told me "Lunch isn't included...

    Craziest Drama on Amtrak you've seen?

    On the Eagle, eastbound to San Antonio, a guy was escorted off the train for bringing a bunch of alcohol onboard. I didn't get the full story but I saw the CD, AC, and LSA walk past me with many bottles o booze. Later that day I heard some pax in the SSL talking about some guy being kicked off...

    Heartland Flyer Service Disruption?

    I took 822 on the 31th. We stopped for about an hour on the halfway mark between GLE and FTW due to "track issues." Conductor said something about having someone come out to look at the track. We were also late leaving FTW due to a stopped BNSF train.

    What happened to CDTX 2051 and 2052?

    These two locomotives still have the old Amtrak CA "Arrows" logo and have seemingly disappeared. Are they still active..?
