Yesterday we were able to book our trip on the Empire builder to East Glacier. We have been following the fares since January and its seemed that they were stuck at high bucket for quite a while, which is outside our budget. Bedroom fares on trains from CHI to GPK 7 and 8 were holding high and still are. On some days the fares are $2067 one way but when we went to check fares I noticed that there was an option to book trains 27 and 28 at a remarkably lower fare of $762 each way so we took that. Now it is assumed that trains 27/7 and 28/8 are the same trains so why the difference in price?
