Really? Corridor passengers not the ones that really need it? Everyone is an Amtrak rider. Two things come to mind though. The regionals badly needed an upgraded menu (Boars Head sandwiches are really good). Second, the states control a lot of the non NEC corridors and therefore have a lot of say in what Amtrak can invest into the food service product so it isn't as easy for Amtrak to roll this out to the other trains. My guess is we'll see upgrades to the LD cafes come soon enough.
That's definitely a huge step up from what's currently being offered on the Regionals, and is arguably superior in some ways to what we have on the Cap and Lake Shore. It still has the issue of *one* vegetarian option for lunch/dinner, however that option is also gluten free, and (the ones that should be) are all hot. Glad to see that corridor passengers get an upgrade, even if they're not the ones who really need it.
This looks better than a Fresh Choice AmBox on the CL/LSL!. The corridors get the attention and good stuff!The New Corridor Café Menu Hungry travelers rejoice!Were revamping the menu on our Acela Express and Northeast Regional trains to bring you healthier, gourmet options!
If youre on a train for as much as 22 hours, Im going to say that you probably need more than someone whos on it for a maximum of 10 hours. Im not saying that the existing offerings on the Regionals were good, but I believe that LD trains need
decent food more than the short distance ones.
