It's not that easy to wash your hands in such tiny bathrooms with very small sinks. And the ease with which germs can spread in Amtrak's bathrooms which get very little en route cleaning is a cause for concern. Someone commented that in his job he has to use portable toilets. That's a job hazard he is willing to accept but most people wouldn't consider that acceptable, especially when they're paying $1,000 or more to travel one way in a roomette across the US.I don't know... I know several people who took Amtrak once, but said never again, on account of dirty bathrooms. I really like taking Amtrak, but I myself have thought twice about selecting Amtrak as the way to travel because of the bathrooms, particularly the smell. I don't worry so much about catching something because I have been engaging in proper handwashing technique for several decades, but sometimes the smell is just very hard on me my delicate princess-like senses.
