Take lots of pics. Even a nice & slow video room tour, if you can. Thx.I’ll be on the Silver Meteor tomorrow so I called Amtrak today and they put me in car 12 which is supposed to be the new one. I was originally assigned car 11 but really wanted to try to new product. Will report back.
When I make reservations (or used to make reservations), I request certain rooms and cars, and usually get them if I get a good phone agent. I have mixed emotions about the change since I am one of those who likes an in-room restroom - but would also like a "new" room. Since I have saved a bunch of money this year by not traveling, my guess is the next time I travel overnight (maybe 30 days after my second vaccination), I will try to get a bedroom in a V II.
The sink itself looked larger to me, but the water splashing issue has been an irritation. The water controls appear different; maybe that will help one to be better able to control the flow of water.Also that new sink design looks rather shallow. I really do hope they fixed the water pressure. Always was too high and splashed everywhere.
The water pressure is indeed better...more akin to a normal faucet at home rather than the power-washer jets of years past.The sink itself looked larger to me, but the water splashing issue has been an irritation.
