I will be boarding the eastbound Capitol Limited in South Bend. Time is 9:09 PM.
Will the Dining Car still be serving dinner then?
Thanks for letting me know.

I remember eating dinner when we arrived at South Bend, so as long as 40 is on time Dinner shouldn't be a problem.
I'm pretty sure the 40 is a typo but I'd love it to not be a typo!

Rely on the SCA and LSA. On a recent TE trip, I had the LSA greet me as I was entering my room to ask about Dinner, that she had a space if I wanted to eat. I said yes, she asked that I come to the DC quickly. After a few minutes putting my things in my room and washing my hands, I was sitting with three others who had just ordered, but we were all severed our meals together.

When making your reservation, ask the Agent to put a Transportation Notice on your reservation. This will give your Attendant a notification on his/her manifest at the beginning of the trip. The SCA can then make arrangements for your reservation so that the dining car crew know you are coming. Transportation Notices are routinely used to notify the Attendant of special needs of all kinds. They are usually used to notify the Attendant of such things as meals in room, service animals, wheelchair assistance, etc. They can be used for this type of thing, too.
