If you're booked on a sleeper on the Silver Star, do they still provide bottled water? Orange juice? Coffee? Soda?

I know the contemporary meals are provided.

Thanks,

Yes. Bottled Water, Coffee, Tea, Juice, Soft Drinks available throughout your trip. Depending on crew you can ask your sleeping car attendant or you can order from the attendant in the dining car.

You also get 1 complimentary alcoholic beverage.

They cut out soft drinks some years ago, unless they brought them back under flex. They were supposed to start rationing the bottled water, 2 per room per day, some attendants enforced it, some didn't. Juice is often just out and available in the mornings.

Yes my post was specific to Flex dining on the eastern trains. It’s unlimited non-alcoholic drinks for sleeping car passengers.

There are no first class amenities on board Amtrak. That's why they call it sleeper class so your expectations are that you get a place to sleep only.

Glad to hear coffee was restored in sleepers cars in the morning.
I'll be sure to check/report regarding the Silver Meteor on my northbound trip on the 28th.
