    Former Amtrak employee convicted of wire fraud

    Gee it takes a lot of nerve to trust a stranger with money. Its best to book with a reputable travel agency with an escrow account.

    Business Class downgrade

    Exactly and I am willing to pay the upgrade price! If Amtrak would provide a Business Class Meal of a local Hot Deli Sandiwch, Beer/Wine/Coccktails for Lunch, WIne and Cheese Plate and then an "Express Choice for Dinner" may be an option. So shouldn' t Amtrak give me an Upgrade since I am...
