Based on the problems we encountered with AMTRAK we'll send them a letter of complaint but will not ride long distance on AMTRAK ever again. Our sleeper cars were aged and had seen their better days and that contributed to our discomfort. But some of the people riding AMTRAK (the guy at the dining table) are inexcusable.

in any public venue and should be reported to Amtrak management. I know how uncomfortable
it can be in a sleeper when the air conditioning and toilets are not working. I traveled
from Charlottesville, VA to Indianapolis, IN in the summertime on the Cardinal without both!!
I wrote a letter to Amtrak Customer Service explaining the situation and received a voucher
for the full cost of the sleeper.

You definitely should have reported the obnoxious passenger at your dinner table to the conductor.
We had a similar experience one time on the CZ and found that several others had complained about the offender. The conductor thanked us for the information and told us he would be detraining the person at the next stop.
Hope you will give Amtrak another try in the future. We have traveled over 40,000 miles on various Amtrak trains in the last few years and I would say that 90 per cent of our rides have been very enjoyable.
