That's it precisely. I just got off #2 on Saturday. And I saw #1 leave the Toronto station on time at 10pm, from my room at the Royal York !

That is the way I remember meals on the B&O, Pennsylvania, and the Santa Fe. Amtrak used to have great meals too, like the almost 2" thick tender juicy pork chop or the prime rib.
