I received this blanket back in 1990 on my very first Amtrak trip! My parents bought it for me in the Lounge on the Lake Shore Limited. I’m taking with me on my upcoming trip Thursday.

Those pillows werent real comfortable as I remember. In Canada in the old days, they passed out really nice Pillows and Blankets to Coach passengers.I never got a blanket - but, the first time I rode the Silver Meteor back in 2011 they allowed us to keep the pillow they handed out for sleeping - most people just left them in their seats when they got off but the attendant told us we were welcome to keep ours. Still have it
I remember being given pillows and blankets on VIA when we paid extra for a Dayniter coach on the Atlantic. The train was still steam-heated in early '92. So even though it was minus 20 outside on a January night, it was wonderfully cozy inside. The pillows were much nicer than the little raspy ones Amtrak gave out to coach passengers. Of course, those were still better than nothing.Those pillows werent real comfortable as I remember. In Canada in the old days, they passed out really nice Pillows and Blankets to Coach passengers.
