I agree 100%. I much prefer American trains - in almost every way except for quantity and timeliness.I ride European trains very frequently. With the exception of basics (speed, frequency and cost), Amtrak sometimes provides better service.
I much prefer seats in America to Europe, and I prefer Acela service to many European carriers, especially DB, which provides a very fragmented and poor service when compared to its peers.
Trenitalia is notorious for delays, and SNCF has its pitfalls, especially when it’s not the TGV.
OBB and SBB, however, provide consistently excellent service.
A lot of European trains aren’t all that comfortable. And I am no giant, about 6 foot 200 pounds.
