And also note that Superliners have 14 Roomettes per car, while Viewliners only have 12.2 regular bedrooms + H in a VL, 5 + family +H in a SL sleeper. That makes for a BR to be tougher to get, especially at a good price, on a VL. There are even a few special SL on the Autotrain with 10 bedrooms + family +H to increase the bedroom availability.
I honestly think that the H room and Family Bedroom on Superliners are each sort of their own separate thing from the standard Bedrooms as well, and can’t really be described as additional Bedroom capacity, per se.I didn't include the roomette count since I was just responding to the remark about bedroom availability.
You are correct about the new V-II layout, but I will honestly be sad to see the in-room toilets go. In the V-IIs, if I have to go in the middle of the night, I'll now have to walk all the way down the hall, and (though this probably won't happen at night) possibly even wait for one to open up, since there are only two in each car (Superliners have five).The new VLs roomette will be just about perfect - as it will revert to the SL toilet approach but keep the sink IIRC. I love having a sink in a roomette, don’t like the toilet.
