This type of schedule keeping surely makes planning a trip "interesting".
No doubt, I will need to reserve a hotel for the day following the train's expected arrival.
I also think I will need to reserve another day after that to "recover" after 4 days on The Canadian since I plan to board in Vancouver.
I, not too long ago, had a 4 consecutive day Amtrak trip on the Sunset Limited connecting to the Southwest Chief. I love train travel. But, I was ready to get off the train when I got to Chicago!
Reactions? Opinions? All are appreciated by me.
