Where is the electrical outlet in the Superliner Bedroom (not Roomette)? Is there only one outlet?
As far as I could tell, there's only one outlet, and it's by the sink. It was sort of a pain to rig up mu phone for charging. About the only downside (other than the price) to the bedroom, in my opinion.

I have been in bedrooms where there are usually 2 outlets. One is next to the sink and the other is either on the hall side of the couch or the window side of the couch.

I usually find two outlets...one over the sink by the mirror and the other at one end of the couch - could be either end.

I’ve only noticed 1 in a Superliner bedroom (by the sink). I never knew there was a 2nd plug by the couch!

Superliners were designed back in the day when I might have needed one outlet for a razor. A few years later I needed outlets for still and video cameras, phone, laptop, scanner, GPS, Walkman......but I've come full circle back to needing only one outlet again for my phone as everything I used to carry is now on that one device (razor excluded!)

I was always surprised that bedrooms only had 1 outlet/plug, while roomettes had 2 outlets/plugs!

At least on Viewliner. 1 is next to the sink/above the toilet. The other is behind your head/on the wall.

I see... I was thinking Superliner Roomette, which only has 1 outlet .

You got me excited thinking there is a secret additional 2nd outlet in a Superliner Roomette that I didn’t know of.

Last time I was in a Viewliner roomette (in February), there was only one outlet (near the sink). I do not recall remembering 2 outlets. Pre-COVID, I would travel on the Silver Meteor in a roomette at least every other month.

Trust me there's TWO outlets in the AutoTrain Superliner Bedrooms. I was on 10 (ten) A/T r/t's last year. One is next to the sink and one is on the wall behind the couch/bed. Could be the inside (left) or outside (right) depending on which room you have.

Superliner I or Superliner II Bedrooms. IIRC, they refurbished some of the Superliner I bedrooms (upper level, the non-roomette half of the car) and I can confirm outlet placement.

I'm happy to confirm this on Wednesday when I'll be on the 5.

Correct! And Superliners on other LD trains as well.

2018 tour of bedroom on Texas Eagle shows 3 outlets: a double on the hallway side of the sink, and a single on the window end of the couch.

... and another from 2019 with the 3rd outlet on the hallway end of the couch.


The rooms look very different from each other. I don't whether one's a Superliner I and the other a II, or they're before & after refurbishment, or whatever. But both have a double outlet next to the sink, and a single at one end of the couch.
