    False advertising about the Capitol Limited

    There are already comments on the Facebook post regarding recent lack of SSL on the CL and the validity of the original post itself (is it really Amtrak?). The orginal post of the image is from Instagram.

    False advertising about the Capitol Limited

    That showed up on Facebook....its not even an "Observation" car (at least in Amtrak terminology).

    AGR credit card change (October 2022)

    BofA changed AGR points posting procedure? Today 9/25 I logged on to my AGR account as I always do after my statement closing date (23 of the month) to update my spreadsheet. Apparently, BofA is now posting points to AGR each time a charge appears on the card. Comparing that to my BofA statement...

    AGR credit card change (October 2022)

    Amtrak's website opens the same old way for me (no VPN here). The FNBO application also opens ok for me (except that the link to "application" doesn't go anywhere). No foreign language noted.

    How to get from BUF (Depew) to Niagara Falls Canada Side?

    I only request a "class" of vehicle - not a specific make and model. If the OP is only going to the falls, public transit might be better. In our case, we did a little some other exploring around the area. As far as availability goes, YMMV. I rented in October 2020 and again in July 2022 in...

    AGR credit card change (October 2022)

    I would guess the $79 fee is incorrect. The page doesn't seem fully functional yet. Examine the URL in the link "FNBO Guest Rewards Apply - LTO" The link to apply isn't active yet ... look at the URL "FNBO Guest Rewards Apply - LTO" zh.amtrak dot com/sdaemtest/apply

    WiFi on longer routes

    Just keep in mind, depending on the route, you will encounter many areas with little or no cell service.

    Traveling with a mobility scooter

    Tucson does not have level boarding for the Superliners on the Sunset Limited/Texas Eagle. Take a look on the Tucson Virtual Railfan Camera. I don't know the status of other stations but, it appears it can go either way.

    Traveling with a mobility scooter

    "Lift shack"? Are you speaking of the locked cage that contains a portable lift device? I've seen those wheeled up to the door of a Superliner sleeper. A wheelchair or scooter can be wheeled onto the lift platform which is then cranked up to door level where a hinged plate is put in place to...

    Texas Eagle vs Southwest Chief

    Did the TE Los Angeles to Chicago in 2015...extra train time! Then, it had a dining car and traditional dining and I enjoyed the trip. It was part of a trip to Washington DC. via Capitol Limited (also had full service then) The return was on the Chief. Now, probably not the TE.

    Superliner seats - ease of access from window seat to aisle?

    The blue California Car has been making occasional appearances on the Pacific Surfliner for a few years now.

    AGR credit card change (October 2022)

    I'm sure FNBO will begin accepting applications for new AGR credit cards in the future. I believe that probably won't happen until the transistion of BofA accounts is complete (on/after Oct 23). The new card will not be "active" until Oct 23 for anyone anyway.

    AGR credit card change (October 2022)

    October is (was) the normal anniversary (AF billing) of my BofA card.

    Sounds like a question for FNBO

    The effect of the potential rail strike on Amtrak

    You've got a week. If your (non-Amtrak) travel plans are flexible (change without penalty) you could probably ride it out. If Amtrak cancels you will be entitled to a full refund; If you cancel, maybe not.

    Train, locations? Perhaps calling Amtrak.
