My late husband and I traveled on the Crescent in the H room quite a few times. He had a transport chair (small wheelchair) but could stand for short periods of time. He never had any problem with the VL 1 H room and toilet, but I realize his disability wasn't as severe as many. The H room in the VL 1 was definitely the best room on the train, imo, whether you needed the accessible features or not.
I hope we get reports from those needing the accessible room on the VL 2 to see how it works for them. If it makes it easier on those for whom it was intended, I'm all for that!
If it were available, I might still find it preferable to a roomette. I could ignore the covered toilet in the corner, I think. Too bad you can't view the other side of the train from the hall window, though.
