What about LSL?Planning our 2024 trip now to the Grand Canyon North rim. Will drive up from Winslow once again. It always a tough decision deciding between two trains or three to get to Chicago to make the connection to the SWC. Usually the NER/Acela to WAS connecting to the CL is less expensive but not always. The Cardinal tends to be a longer trip at 26hrs vs 21 for the NER/CL but more convenient and the scenery is nicer. You need to depart PHL at 8am for the Cardnal as opposed to about 12:30 PM for the NEC/CL connection. At the same cost I would say the Cardinal is a better trip and you will probably ride in a VL2.
