I have been aware for some time of how expensive Amtrak sleeper fares have become, but continue to be shocked at the level of increases, which seem to be never ending. I have been pricing one-way Empire Builder fares between St. Paul, MN and Whitefish, MT for upcoming months through October. For this 24-hour journey, fares for roomettes are often $1,000+ and bedrooms are $2,000+ for a solo traveler! That's just one-way! Spending $2,000+ on a roomette or $4,000+ on a bedroom for a Minnesota to Montana round trip is crazy! I'm spending less for an upcoming trip to Europe which includes transatlantic airfare and a 10-day cruise.
