This is about having a bedroom suite for a short segment of the Coast Starlight in February, 2004.
I was living on Maui, and my girlfriend (now wife) and I had visited a friend of hers on Orcas Island, Washington. We had booked a bedroom on the Coast Starlight from Seattle to Los Angeles, from where we would fly back to Maui. My sister lives in Portland with her husband and son, and they drove to Seattle to meet us. My sister and nephew were going to ride on the train with us as far as Portland, while her husband drove back. After we boarded, our SCA informed us that there were two adjacent rooms available as far as Portland, and he could join them as a suite for the four of us. It was great having plenty of room for everyone, and we could even carry on two separate conversations.
Then there was the time my wife and I rode from Los Angeles to New Orleans with my mother in an adjacent room. We did not even mention the door between the rooms, and quickly changed the subject when our SCA offered to connect the rooms.
