    Silver Star Diner

    That's pretty much exactly how it worked out with our numbers as well. And since we're vegetarian, it's a far worse deal, since those foods cost less to begin with. Plus, they won't even guarantee that the plant-based items (Things like veggie-burgers) will be available for the duration of the...

    Silver Star Diner

    We booked 2 Silver Star roomettes in September for this coming August. (We opted not to go with the Meteor because the schedule for Star was so much more convenient for our travel plans. We planned to just bring a bit of our own food to supplement the cafe car.) We paid in full when we...

    Amtrak train hits vehicle in Florida 11/23/19

    Looking at the photos of the different angles of the intersection, taken the same day of the accident, the entire intersection looks very clear. The signs are very noticeable and you can see for a long distance down the tracks. It really doesn't seem like anything was obstructed. I just...

    Why trains instead of planes for long distance?

    Hertz Rental at Orlando Station

    Question about Orlando area stations

    Hello!  We are planning a trip from the 30th street station in Philly down to the Orlando area.  We'll be booking 2 roomettes (It's myself, my husband, and two older kids, so a bedroom wouldn't be quite large enough.) on the Silver Star. (We're perfectly okay with bringing our own food to...
