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.
There is a pinned thread regarding Viewliner sleepers: Viewliner II Part 4: Sleeping Car Production, Delivery, SpeculationOn 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.
The Star consist currently is a V-1 on the 10 car and V-2 on the 11 car. Bedrooms on both versions have restrooms. It is possible that the consist may change by the end of September or it may remain the same. Because the Star is only running with 2 sleepers, they are selling out faster and are more expensive (in my experience when pricing trips).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 had the experience of my bedroom AC not working on a Viewliner 2 in May. The AC in the roomette section of the car was working. I ended up sitting either in the dining car or an empty roomette.I’ve been on a few Viewliner I’s with broken A/C (fortunately all broke on day 2 so we were easily accommodated in other rooms/cars). Actually, one of those instances was my bedroom’s A/C not working but the roomettes in the same car did.
