    Date change needed - online or call?

    I need to change one leg of my ticket to leave a day earlier and get off at an earlier stop. The ticket was booked with dollars and had no change fees attached. Should I rebook online and cancel the other trip online, or call Amtrak and have them make the change?

    I will be on the Southwest Chief next week. I am still needing to avoid people so I do not want to eat in the dining car. Can I get my meal to go so I can eat it alone in my room?

    Lamy Station destaffed again
