I'm looking at the diagram for the Superliner Roomette, would someone please tell me which one is #10?  Thanks           Is #10 the one right next to the toilet?

#1 is right next to the toilet, and is the Sleeping Car Attendant's room.  #10 is at the end next to the door between cars.

"Track-a-train" is still there-it's at the bottom of the Amtrak home page.

If I could bother the membership one more time..............I originally wrote about bringing my much  older brother out to visit me in Washington, DC.....Bob lives in Richland, WA.  He would board Amtrak at Pasco, WA.   He's elderly, fiercely independent, has never ridden the train before. 

 

Bob tells me he would like to first go to Philadelphia to visit with his late wife's family......just fine with me, BUT I'm looking at the 5:00 a.m. connection in Pittsburgh and wondering if the Sleeping Car Attendant will assure he is up on time and ready to depart the train?

 

If he were to somehow miss that connection............what happens?

 

With the combined wealth of knowledge of this membership, I'm certain someone out there knows what Amtrak is likely to do in such a situation..........and I know in these types of events there can be any number of actions Amtrak could take.......

 

As always, THANKS SO VERY MUCH for any and all replies offered.  I an eternally grateful.  "Nick"

Yes, he will be given a wake-up by either the SCA or a Conductor before arriving into the Pittsburgh Dungeon,er Station.

It wouldn't hurt for him to ask the SCA before going to bed to ensure he has enough time to awaken,gather his stuff and perhaps even shower before deboarding.

Allowing passengers to miss their stops is called a "Carry-by" and Amtrak frowns on this. But they usually try to accommodate passengers in this instance ( which are rare)by getting them to their destinations.

In this case, he would end up in Washington which is the terminal stop for the Cap.

He will have a 2 Hour or so wait in the uncomfortable Amtrak Waiting Room and will climb the stairs up to the platform to catch the train to Philly.

The agent @ Pittsburgh is very friendly and helpful in my opinion.

Note: there are only Vending Machines in the Station,there is no food or drink available until he boards the next train.

If he's lucky the SCA on the Cap would have Coffee ready and perhaps,some juice before arrival into Pittsburgh @ 5am.

As a sleeper passenger wouldn't he wait in the Club Acela and not the waiting room if he ended up in WAS?

The SCA or Conductor wakes (notifies) coach passengers at least 30 minutes before arrival and sleeper passengers at least 45 minutes before arriving at a nighttime station. However, they do not check to see if you are up and packed normally. That is up to the passenger themselves.
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

Yeah, if Amtrak doesn’t wake a passenger up in time for their stop, it’s their responsibility. I’m wondering though if it would be preferable for Bob to take the Capitol to WAS and transfer there. That way he wouldn’t have to wake up so early and would have a sleeper most of the way. Just a thought.

In the original post yes, I was responding to this line in a later post (from member Bob Dylan)

I think staying on the CL to Washington and then going from there to Philadelphia is the better approach and he can sleep comfortably in his roomette until at least 7 AM (which is when the dining car steward typically gets on the P.A. to announce that breakfast is being served in the dining car.
