OK, there were three sleepers. Moosejunky99 had a reservation for a bedroom in one of these sleepers. A party of six wanted adjoining bedrooms, so moosejunky99, traveling as a single, was downgraded to a roomette since no other bedrooms were apparently available. (If moosejunky99 had been traveling with a companion they would probably have both been downgraded.) I can see that, cost-wise, Amtrak would have made out better accommodating the party of six rather than a party of one or two, even if that party of six made their reservations well after moosejunky99. Fortunately, moosejunky99 was able to take the downgrade in stride. Let’s hope that this was an isolated incident and not a foreshadowing of what could happen in the future, particularly during the peak travel season.No, the train had 3 sleepers. No cars were cancelled. He had a reservation for a bedroom in one of the cars. That bedroom was taken away, apparently so a large party could occupy it as part of a bedroom suite. He was put in a Roomette in one of the other 2 sleepers.
