Two years ago, in full pandemic mode, I struck up a conversation with the young Amish couple across the hall on the CZ. We agreed to just go in together as a "party" and that way we got to eat together and carry on a conversation. We were all good about only removing masks when actually eating, and as far as I know, no one got sick (I certainly didn't).Our last LD trip was at the tail end of the pandemic so they were still seating people apart but one trip on 448 a lady traveling alone was accidentally seated with us as the attendant thought she was part of our party. We had a nice conversation as she had just finished a visit in Boston to attend a spiritual conference and was returning home to Erie PA (which meant detraining at O dark 30 I didn't envy her). Seems you always meet interesting people on trains.
