    Fare Buckets - and when do they increase/decrease?

    I am late into this discussion. Please let me know where I can check fares. I used to be able to plan and schedule my own trips on the Amtrak site. I miss that feature. Thanks.

    California Zephyr discussion

    I've usually found the windows to be clean when the Zephyr leaves Chicago. One advantage of having the Handicapped Accessible bedroom (there are several, BTW) is that you can clean the windows during a "smoke break".

    Superliner trains' removal and restoration of cars (2022-2023)

    Superliner trains' removal and restoration of cars (2022-2023)

    I just called Guest Services and the correct story is that they are taking one Sleeper out of service at a time for renovation. Goodness knows they need it. A couple weeks ago I traveled on the CZ from Grand Junction to Chicago with NO working toilets in my car!! I have the accessible bedroom...
