I think Silver Meteor, 97 should be D, B, L

and Silver Meteor, 98 should be B, L, D, B

 

I also think Cardinal 51 needs to be corrected, but I am not sure.

The Cardinal definitely needs to be corrected, it has defined meals and meal periods just like any other train with a Diner.

Yeah, the Cardinal's directions are reversed.  Eastbound starts with dinner, westbound starts with breakfast.

Make sure the BLDB's match up between the left side and the right side (like 50- Eastbound: B,L,D,B should be 50- Eastbound: D,B,L,D)

Yep, always good to get a 2nd, 3rd, 100th pair of eyes to check things out.

 

I'll contact web masters/owners of websites, if I can find a "contact us", when I see typos.  Not because I'm picky, but because it can make the site look bad and they may loose business.

97 leaves NYP at 3:15pm.  Dinner is the first meal.

98 leaves MIA at 8:10am.  Breakfast is the first meal (usually) and ordinarily lunch is not served the second day because it is scheduled to arrive in NYP before noon.

What else do I need to change?


Your info on the CZ and EB are wrong. They should be:

CZ West D B L D B L East L D B L D B *L (can't remember if they serve lunch before arrival).

EB West D B L D B East D B L D B *L (see above).

You show EB 28 as 26.

Northbound CONO (#58) doesn't serve lunch. In fact, they're in a hurry to get breakfast done. 

 

Or at least it didn't as of November 2015.

 

ETA: Thanks for the great job, by the way.

Andersone,

 

Is it possible for you to separate 21/22 and 421/422 on your grid? 

 

The current CL (https://www.amtrak.c...r-Menu-0416.pdf) lists breakfast and "express lunch". There is no "brunch" specified. Interestingly continental breakfast is a listed as a breakfast and a lunch option.

 

The CL 29 serves breakfast upon arrival into CHI but the LSL 49 does not? The LSL arrives after the CL.

 

I'm thinking of upgrading to a roomette for one of the legs of a trip I am planning and I wanted to see what meal(s) to get. I know the Amtrak steak isn't available on the LSL currently. After the horror of the last CL trip I'd like to avoid the CL (at least eastbound where you have to deal with CSX at the end of the trip). I'm guessing either Chicago-Texas or Texas-Chicago would be the best choice.


Trains Traveled:
 
Broadway Limited (CHI-Harrisburg, PA) 
Three Rivers (Harrisburg, PA-CHI, Altoona, PA-CHI, PHL-CHI)
Capitol Limited (CHI-WAS)
Lake Short Limited (NYP-CHI)
Silver Meteor (PHL-ORL)
Southwest Chief (CHI-LAX)
California Zephyr (CHI-SLC, SLC-EMY)
City of New Orleans and/or Illini (CHI-Champaign, IL)

 

All I want for Amtrak is a direct train from Philly to Chicago in less than 24 hours

Even though there is currently no Diner on #49, Breakfast IS served on the way to Chicago.

I'm not certain what is on offer, but I would think it is similar to the Limited Menu available on the CONO and the Cardinal???

As for the Texas Eagle (#21/22/421/#422), between San Antonio and Chicago the following meals are served in the CCC/Diner(Full Menu).

#22/#422:(5) Breakfast, Lunch,Dinner,Breakast,Lunch

#21/#421:(4) Dinner,Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner
