I forgot to include the mileage for business class in the Palmetto (probably because it isn't sleeper service) so the file is now updated. Woody thought he saw a typo which turned out not to be a typo but after checking I found this error so TY. Fun fact: The distance of the Coast Starlight and the Crescent are exactly the same (1,377 miles)!

Your point of Starlight and Crescent has merit. Of course 3 or 4 sleepers on Starlight makes some difference. + more coach space using Superliners. Crescent's lack of traffic south of Atlanta is another. Though Starlight has more PM/TM the passengers do not go as far so much more turnover. Maybe Starlight's trip during daytime thru California vs. Crescent's daytime south of Atlanta ?
