About VTTrain

  1. For starters it assumes that the last roomette is sold out on every trip of the year.
  2. Thank you for that response. I saw some YouTube videos showing the sleepers up front. I'm glad to hear that normally the sleepers are at the back. I am assigned to roomette #1 which should give me a good chance of having the wider roomette seat facing forward.
  3. A couple of questions in regard to the Silver Meteor: 1) Are the sleeper cars normally directly behind the locomotive? I have been assigned car 9811. I am REALLY hoping that I don't get an up close and personal experience with the locomotive's horn all night. 2) Which end of the sleepers normally faces forward (toward the engine). The end with the bedrooms or the end with the shower? 3) Is it worth trying to get the wider roomette seat facing forward? Or is the toilet-side seat plenty wide enough and I am just overthinking this?

    City of New Orleans on time performance?

    That flabbergasts me.
  5. Wyoming would present a challenge as well.
  6. One less roomette won’t make the remaining roomettes any cheaper.
  7. It wasn’t my photo. I grabbed it from Google. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve tried , fortunately.

    Wouldn’t you lose 25% of your original fare and not just the difference?
  10. The beauty of this concept is that you don’t have to pick that. You get six choices to choose from. You can pick multiples of the same choice if you want. It’s very flexible.
  11. Fortunately work pays for it. Trip is on November 12, 2019. Today was the first day that I could book.
  12. Roomette is purchased! $323 CHS - NYP. Boarding time in Charleston is 9:17 PM. I’ll grab dinner before I board.

    I can't argue with your assessment of Springfield. Other than the Basketball Hall of Fame and a new casino, it does not have much to offer.
