Hello, I am booked on the Silver Star and Silver Meteor in mid September. On the Star I am in Car 9110, Bedroom B. On the Meteor I am in Car 9811, Bedroom B. What do you think my chances are for receiving a VLII instead of a VLI? Thanks.

Both of those are VI’s unfortunately. Maybe try to call and request.

EDIT: it’s possible 10 is a VII. Just looked at my record of my recent Silver Meteor trip. I think it was a II, so maybe the star is doing the same

During my recent trips on the Meteor and Star this month, V-2s were the 10 and 12 cars on the Meteor and the 11 car on the Star. Things could be different in September.

I’m on the Star in late September—Car 9110. Would be nice if that was a VL2, but either/or is fine.

I would like to experience a VLII on at least one leg of my trip. But, I’ll be happy with either one.

On a different note, is there a way we can pin this thread or put this in a general location? There have been countless of threads asking this same question.

Only if we give Amtrak dining its own forum! :)

And Brightline its own subforum.

I just saw the northbound Silver Star travel through Orlando and it still has 2 sleeper cars. The 10 car is a V-1 and 11 car is a V-2.

Thank you, PennyK. If this consist continues into September, I'll be riding south in a VL-I on the Star. I'm in 9110. The northbound trip is on the Meteor in 9811. Maybe that will be a VL-II. We shall see.

I’m on #91 in a Bedroom in very late September. Car 9110. Any chance that’ll be in a VL2? I’ve heard the bedrooms still have potties.

I scored that Bedroom for 31K points. Now, it seems you can’t get one for less than 50K points!! What a steal!
