I have booked a trip to Orlando next month. I will be taking the Northeast Regional from NPN to RVR and then taking the Silver Meteor to ORL. On the return, I will be taking the Silver Star back to RVR and then the NER back to NPN. The reason for that is because the SM arrives in Richmond in the early morning hours, while the SS arrives in the middle of the day. I would feel more comfortable arriving at the station during the daylight hours.
Because it's a single overnight trip each way, I plan to ride in coach. I will be taking a blanket and a neck travel pillow.
Oh, does the Meteor have both a dining car and cafe car? And is the CC open during the times when the DC isn't?
Any pointers or advice is welcome!
