I am considering taking the Auto Train within the next several weeks. I have a few questions relative to dining during this pandemic:

1. Are "standard" meals being served?
2. If so, what is the seating arrangement (social distancing)?
3. Is there an option to eat your meals in your sleeping compartment (bedroom)?

And any other advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Here's what I found on the Amtrak website"

Coronavirus Update | Amtrak

Click on the "Food and Beverage" tab. It mentions the Auto Train.
Thanks for the info.

Which lead to another question. Has the capacity of the train been reduced to increase social distancing? I was hoping to get a bedroom and I see on many dates the bedrooms are sold out. I was surprised at that considering travel in general has been reduced.

Any input appreciated. Thank you!

Yes, capacity has been reduced but the auto train is still quite busy. They are encouraging people to eat in their rooms and using alternate seating arrangements.
