I accessed the Amtrak Sleeper Car diagram for a transition sleeper. I saw no Roomette #14 which is where my accommodation is.Probably right behind the baggage car. That's a transition sleeper.
From the consist info, 5240 is suppose to be a Deluxe Sleeper, which has only bedrooms and no roomettes. So, I have to wonder how you ended up with Roomette 14?I saw no Roomette #14 which is where my accommodation is.
The Deluxe Sleeper has roomettes on the lower level so it has #11-14.From the consist info, 5240 is suppose to be a Deluxe Sleeper, which has only bedrooms and no roomettes. So, I have to wonder how you ended up with Roomette 14?
Just checked the diagram on the Amtrak Car Design Website and that is what I saw. That's OK for me. The diagram shows no shower facility. But, there are 4 toilet facilities for 4 Roomettes. Is that correct?The Deluxe Sleeper has roomettes on the lower level so it has #11-14.
I'm unclear as to what you are saying. One of the 4 roomettes has a shower? The Car Design Website shows 4 standard Superliner Roomettes, a family room, and a Handicap Room on the lower level of the Deluxe Sleeper. I know the family room would not have a shower; don't remember about the handicap room.I might be wrong, but I believe one of those 4 has the shower
Sorry about the confusion. What I was saying was I believe that the toilet/shower setup is the same as if the car had not been modified upstairs, so that one of the 4 toilets has changing/shower space.
Thanks to both of you for clearing this up for me.PVD is correct. The deluxe sleeper has a shower compartment on the lower level.
Your ticket is "collected" when you check in and are issued a boarding pass. You are free to use the SSL as soon as you board if you wish....Where is this car in the train consist? Is it close to the Sleeper Dining Car? Close to the SSL?
Will I have to remain in my Roomette until the Conductor "picks up" my ticket upon departure from Sanford? I think I would prefer to be seated in the SSL when we depart from Sanford simply because of sightseer reasons while it is still light.
Thank you. That looks like a good location. Not far to get to either the Diner or the Lounge Car of whatever type it may be.Here’s the thread on consists... https://discuss.amtraktrains.com/threads/line-numbers-consist-listings.32610/
Looks like 5240 is the 7th car back from the locomotives, one car back from the diner and two back from the lounge (which will likely not be a true SSL).
