I will be using my $299 railpass next month and in September. Guess it will be too early for Coach passengers to purchase dining car food. A decent sit down breakfast would be most welcome.I am augmenting my mostly railpass journey with two roomettes on the Crescent and Empire Builder. Flexible,then traditional. Can't wait for real food on the latter!Hope springs eternal
Another point. Announcements don't begin until 7AM on board trains. The diners open at 6:30. That half hour is pretty empty. It would be nice to let coach pax purchase breakfast in the dining car that early half hour period.
