Phew, thanks for the reassurance! One less thing off the travel worry list.732 is the transdorm car line for the Builder (it may not actually be a transdorm. In the recent past, some Builder consists have had transdorms, some standard sleepers). I have no idea why they use 32 for the transdorm on the Builder instead of the 40 car line that is used for the other trains, but they do.
Regardless, 732 is a transdorm car line and therefore relatively safe. The "base" sleeper and the transdorm on trains that have them are pretty assured to run. The 31 car line is the one that would be at risk for removal on the Builder.
A couple (hopefully) quick questions about the transdorm if you have time - do the transdorms only have roomettes, and only on the upper level? I was a little disappointed to see room 12 on our ticket thinking this was the lower level on a standard Superliner, but it seems that the transdorms fit all the roomettes on the upper level?
Also, is the trandorm typically right behind the locomotive? Might pack some earplugs if that's the case.
Thanks a bunch!
