    Any travel concerns to consider? CHI to CTTL

    I am looking to travel from Chicago, IL to Centralia, WA. I can get a single ticket via the South West Chief with transfer in LA to the Coast Starlight.

    Question regarding planned trip from St. Louis to Reno

    I don't like such a close connection. I'd leave STL on the earlier train, I think it leaves at 0430. I have done this for all my long distance trips out of Chicago.

    Points For Completing Survey

    I have earned about 500 points since July. My biggest thing would be time to complete. It always seems longer than they suggest. I have a lot of the 5 point ones, but also a number of 30, 40 & a 100 point survey.

    Problem updating Amtrak account details online

    I understand your frustration when a computer is not working. I have never had to show my NARP card, but I don't know if the Amtrak system checks the number against the NARP roster. It seems like it just needs to see a number in that field.

    I booked a trip on points from PDX to KCY. I am scheduled to leave PDX on CS to LAX. Spend the night at my expense then leave the next day on the SWC to KCY. I tried that routing today to see if the price may have changed and it only shows one option. A transfer at SAC to a bus, then a segment...

    Disillusionment with Amtrak sleeper perks

    I did a trip on CONO Tuesday. Had Rion for an SCA southbound. He was excellent. But the food was disappointing. Last round trip was a couple years ago & it was very good.

    Northbound CONO broke down.

    All they told us was the engine lost all power.
