    Empire Builder Westbound, Change from Bedroom to Roomette

    Empire Builder Westbound, Change from Bedroom to Roomette

    the running late gamble is interesting. If it is really late, could sleep through the night. Most likely would add a lot of anxiety to the night though.

    Empire Builder Westbound, Change from Bedroom to Roomette

    Going from Chicago to Sea in October and prefer a bedroom for the trip. Back in the old days of AGR distance charts, I almost exclusively traveled in bedrooms because I earned ample points with my business spending on amex and chase cards. Obviously those days are over and we'll it's roomettes...

    How to get to Morgantown, WV

    Aq Thanks for the help. I just changed the reservation to CUM from PGH. Was really dreading the 4:00AM wake up knock from Service Attendent, and then hanging around the Pitt station for a few hours in the dark, half asleep before the car rental place opened (although the sugessted Mountain...

    How to get to Morgantown, WV

    Sounds Great, will look into that as well as changing from PGH to Cumberland as suggested. The 435 arrival is obviously no fun. Oh and its the Oklahoma / WVU game.

    Adding Travel Companion on Existing AGR Trip

    Booked a Roomette (KCY to SEA) on AGR, for just myself. Have now found a friend who can go, but he is only going to LA. Should I just call and add him to the reservation through Seattle or tell them he will be off in LA? I have also decided to stick with the roomette even though there will...

    2 Parlour Cars Out of Service

    I'm on 14 next week and am looking forward to having a PPC as I am taking my parents this trip and have told them about the PPC (excited). I will not be devastated if we only have a CCC. As someone has mentioned before, those purple chairs sure could use updating. To me that seems like such a...

    Express fares

    Yes. The berths are just two open chairs facing each other in the day and then two beds at night with a curtain separating you from the hallway. Just really a question of your budget and how much you value the privacy that a door provides.

    Express fares

    Just got back for this trip today, thanks to the express deal, I would encourage anyone one the fence to take the plunge, great trip. Although I would suggest if the money was there to definitely get the cabins over the berths if travelling with someone else
