    I'm taking a train to NYC from Toledo, Ohio & I'm getting the premium tickets for my husband & I & I wanted to know since my tickets include breakfast, lunch, & dinner do we have to eat in the dining cart or can we take it back to our rooms & bring back the dishes when we are done ? & Also , do we get to order more than one thing for each meal section or do we have to order one thing per selection ?? & Does it include seconds of anything ??

    If you want to take a train on a phoenix you cannot you would have to take a Greyhound bus to Flagstaff and the train out of Flagstaff. Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the United States no Amtrak service?

    train riding is uncomfortable..& nobody is friendly..seating is uncomfortable..and you have to walk around and sit in sight cars to stretch out legs..totally uncomfortable for disabiled or a guy with one leg..Like ME..!! Food sucks..and they always miss you for the dinner calls..and if you don't hear the call of your number.you have to eat the shit expensive sandwich & soda food..!!

    Is that "Shenandoah" at the Accommodation part starting at 6:24? Like I say about this video, this video tells the truth about rail travel. This channel that created the video has just gotten a sub.

    This has the absolute truth about train travel. At 0:40, they say "feel free to move about". Yes, you can do so. Now the downside is that you don't have total balance when the train sways from side to side. So while traveling between 75 to 90 miles an hour, hang onto something to hold yourself up. Now here is the kicker that really gets you to riding the train and it is the absolute truth and what I like bout traveling by rail. At 1:06, get a sandwich and a soda or coffee so you can "eat with the animals" as you go thru the different parts of the country. When traveling by train, you get to see some things that you don't see from a major highway.

    This is a clear and well example of where the government can when the market cannot. Without the government, the market never would've been able to come up with an alternative to Amtrak.

    Despite current state of much needed repairs to rails themselves, I trust trains above any other way of travel, it’s easy though I’ll admit my first time on one by myself, I sat in the wrong level! Heh! Just gently apologize and act dumb and go up lol, they weren’t all that bad about it. The dude next to me, did the same thing ! Lol

    Can you guys tell me why Amtrak can't provide cars with clean windows?  Kind of impossible to enjoy the "breathtaking views"(everyone in the business SELLS the view).  But the sad fact is that the windows are always filthy.  Why?  Because once you bought the ticket you're stuck… like it or lump it, sucker.

    The Company like Am Trak make it sound so glorious, its NOT!! Its very expensive especially if you travel from Calif to Florida. I did this route the worse experience I have ever done, the rails which is considered the Southern Route is so outdated and bumpy. I took a sleeper car cause I am handicapped and I needed to be on the bottom level. Well when it came to eat dinner They had to come and serve me, and I did pay full top dollar. I can walk and go up the stairs but Not very often. I did manage to get out of my room which is the two times the size of an airline toliets, and the toilets are as that big, so its hard to take a shower in one of those and since I am a big grandma type, its very hard to wipe your hiney in something that small, let alone a shower. I had to get off the pot wipe the hiney and then get back on and flush. its very very small unless you get another sleeper car which is called the Handicaped one. I was supposed to get that one but because of the price, I could not afford to pay 3000.00 for that for 1 full week, which runs 5 days across. The food is ok not the greatest but as a single mom I had no choice, either this or the airlines and I would have to purchase two seats, Im not that big mind you but 210 pounds I was told its big momma… The food for lunch is sandwiches or a hot meal and it can run about 12.00 pp.. and it can add up if you have children, the plan I took was dinner to be paid by them, I usually stock up on foods if I know I am going on a long trip.. so I stock up on crackers and peanut butter for lunch and buy a soft drink can of coke. but they do have drinks for free if you pay for a sleeping car. I did not want to buy the car that was like the previous man one sleeper with a share of the toliets, they can cost about 1000.00 across country but I chose to be left alone. I did this another time with the northern route and liked it till I found the silver meteor southern route which is terrible .. either go Northern route of fly… never again. The cars bump and stops are 11 of them by the time you get to Florida, where my kids pick me up at Sanford  Fl… I did take the one to Lawford VA that's a good one 17 hours but they treated you good, the people who take care of you are much better than the ones in calif.. I did take this in Reg car but the person I was with stunk, farted all the time in the room nearly killed me for 7 days.. I left from Nigagra Falls to Seattle, That was a nice trip but make sure you go alone or with your husband if you need to punch him your ok, I could not punch my friend but I did leave her alone in the car that day and night while I paid an additional 500.00 more to be by myself because of what she did for one night.  Overall, I think its ok for 1 or two days, but not for 5 days, I did not like it too much.. I do not think I will do this again in Americas.. I did however love the rails in Europe which is called Railbookers. they are dot com after that.. They are not cheap by anymeans too, 12 days still ran me $7000.00 without food and 3 days in each hotel with 2 tours in each city. I went to 4 countries. I managed to see Italy, Spain, France and Switzerland. Wonderful I would do this again with Railbookers, they are under the umbrella of Am Trak, they are fast and lovely.. back pack that way you can reuse your clothes.. I am visiting gk and I took this time sneakers, slippers, jeans 4 shorts 5 pairs of panties and 5 shirts that's It… I can buy new clothes there, in Europe I went with the same things, but I left them all there when I left so I had not had a lot to bring back.. So now you know whats good and whats not.. The food for dinner I Had a filet migon which was good, and lunch crakers and grilled cheese and breakfast was the worse.. Boxed pancakes, French toast and waffles. I could have   bought my own and plugged in my microwave and ate inside but we are not allowed to do this, I was told. I tried it,already.  any questions message me I will tell you..

    Best way to travel by train is lay back in your recliner and watch good YouTube videos of other people doing it. Besides, Molly my Chihuahua only wants to sleep in our bed.

    if you are in coach don't expect to get a meal in the dinning car. they take the sleeping car passengers first. you can get a snack but seldom a full dinning car meal.

    Took Amtrak from Chicago to Syracuse then return from Boston to Chicago – stopped at every podunk town – just about the time you were about to go to sleep. No observation car, dining was very poor – the worst of a booth that you could ever experience, seats recline about 4 inches. The worst experience I have ever had travelling – will NEVER use a train again.

    AMERICAN RAILWAYS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE. I WENT TO AMERICA IN 2015 AND I DECIDED TO EXPLORE AMERICA ON TRAIN. I RESERVE MY BOOKING FROM WASHINGTON TO NEWYORK IN BUSINESS CLASS. TICKET PRICES ARE ALMOST SAME TO AEROPLANE TICKET PRICE AND IT WAS SO LAZY TO REACH AT NEWYORK BECAUSE TRAINS ARE VERY SLOW. HOWEVER, IN THIS JOURNEY I MET WITH SO MANY PEOPLE. WE BOTH SHARE OUR INDIAN AND AMERICAN CULTURE EVERY BODY WAS HAPPY.

    I'd rather fly than take the train. It seems like only old people ride trains. Lots of bengay, adult diapers and granny panties is not how I wanna spend my trip.

    I travel by Amtrak when I travel long distance, my flying days outside of Trans Pacific flights & Trans Atlantic flights are over
    for good. The train is the civilized way to travel, and the best way to see the country in the daytime, and you can do a lot of reading
    At night before you go to sleep. When traveling by train, bring a good book, a camera, relax and enjoy the trip.
