    Who travels in the Sleeper Cars?

    I have taken the train to go places due to distance as well as taking some short trips just because I enjoy it. I am in the group that doesn't fly However, I have yet to use a sleeper. I have ridden coach - even overnight. At the current rates, traveling by sleeper has been out of my range ...

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    That is a valid concern! However, the mini-fridge might be nice. Just throwing ideas out there. The thing is - there is no "perfect solution" since some would rather full food service and others would rather bring their own - cooking in the room may not be ideal -but, almost anything would be...

    The "2700 David Jones" didn't include the 1400 "Davey Jones" or the 900 "Davy Jones"

    triweekly service will be overshadowed by drop in revenue

    One thing that might help to regain ridership is to "Advertise! Advertise! Advertise!" Bring public awareness to the fact that the trains are still running and that they can handle social distancing while still providing mass transit - even when the trip is LD. Promote the good points of rail...

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    Reconfigure the sleeper cars to only have rooms with enclosed toilet/shower (similar to the bedrooms) with a mini-fridge and a small microwave. Call them roomettes, bedrooms, suites, lounges, private space - whatever ... the name is not all that important. Just admit that, post C-19 maximum...

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    Since the rooms on a superliner have upper and lower berth on both levels 🤔 too bad there isn't a way to have three levels with single births 😎 Then again, if there were just some way to connect more cars together to make a single train longer so it could carry more people at the same time...

    Amtrak suspends Express Shipping

    It does seem odd that Amtrak and USPS don't have a better working relationship when they both have the same owner. Can you picture Coke hiring Frito-Lay to ship Powerade somewhere 😱 I don't think so!

    Amtrak suspends Express Shipping

    Adding yet another step in the shipping/receiving routine .... not the best when FedEx and UPS are a single call for pickup and delivery for businesses

    Amtrak suspends Express Shipping

    Yes, and FedEx and UPS will pick up those packages at your door/business ... you don't have to take them to a train depot that is inconveniently located

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    I guess that I'm not that much different than the ones who said the consist could/should be "all sleepers" or the ones who indicate that no one can sleep in coach. Yes, we all have different preferences. It is not that I "prefer" coach - I would gladly use a sleeper if I could afford one - but...

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    Having an upper berth is not the problem - the size of the roomette is. Why not just do away with roomettes, have only bedrooms with enclosed shower/toilet. Just have less rooms per car and FULLY FUND Amtrak and quit trying to squeeze every possible dollar per square foot/inch out of the car...

    Viewliner Sleeper Bathroom Question

    Notice the dimensions of the roomettes: The entire roomette is about the same floor space as a living room sofa Sofa Length: Though sofas can be anywhere between 70" and 96" long, standard three-person sofas tend to be between 70" and 87" long, and the most common length is 84". Sofa...
