If I have an agent that doesn't cooperate, I just say thank you, hang up, wait a few minutes and call back, always getting a different agent.  A couple weeks ago I did just this and the second agent really knew her business, explaining pros and cons, suggesting a work around, but all the time trying to make things work for me.  Make a separate reservation is less complicated.

Why bother trying to add it to your original reservation? Just go online (or call) and buy a round trip ticket from SAC to MTZ.

^^^ That. No reason to connect the two.

Also, telling Amtrak that you intend to break the rules and stay in your room past your ticketed destination isn't likely to put them in a helpful mood. Do be aware of the fact that you're asking someone to risk their job by letting you occupy a room you're not ticketed for. It's a personal decision that obviously others are OK with, but I wouldn't ever do it.
