- Pittsburgh, Pa.
I can accept the reasoning that the baggaage car is on the rear to reduce rocking. And I get with split consists the cars are gonna be mixed. I am just old school; when I was a kid, the coaches were first, the diner and sometimes the lounge was in the middle unless it was an observation car. First class passengers are supposed to have ready access to the railfan window. Amtrak is destroying what nature intended. ;-) ;-)
