Thank you all for your kind words.
@Everydaymatters: I'm blushing. You might like my Amtrak trip report as well:
@v v: If by ridership you mean what the average passenger is like, then yes, it was different, especially The Canadian (Toronto-Vancouver) was more of a tourist train, with a lot more passengers from overseas (I met people from Germany, Britain, France, South Korea, Australia, which I never did on all my LD trips on Amtrak).
