  1. The elusive breakfast sandwich photo on the lakeshore limited. Actually looks good. I have have now eaten it and I enjoyed it. Of course I miss the pancakes and sausage. But this is an improvement. The attendant did not speak. Just pointed. I asked for the sandwich and coffee. She sat at her table and played music. Was super friendly with crew members. I was not impressed. I am somewhat inclined to buy food from the snack car and sit there later today and play some AC/DC on my phone. If she can play her music I can play mine.

  3. Penny, it is. Another poster confirmed. I noticed the addition of the tavern ham sandwich. I’ll eat breakfast in the diner, and lunch in the cafe car. Thank you.
  4. I have not been able to find the new caffe menu. Is there a separate link?
  5. The The breakfast menu is a big improvement on this over what was before but the lunch and dinner menus still just need a basic sandwich like

  8. After riding both the lakeshore limited and Capitol limited I sent an email with my reservation numbers from both trips telling them I was done with these trains until positive changes were made.
  9. I had this delicious bacon and egg sandwich from Starbucks at work yesterday. The principal asked a few teachers to come in early for a workshop. She ordered these sandwiches from Starbucks. I was skeptical until she said bacon and egg. The dang thing was pretty good and I would have eaten two if they weren’t watching. This would be a huge improvement over those stupid muffins.
  10. I will be on 48 out if Chicago on 1/18/19 in a roomette. So I will be happy to give a report of my experience.

    Amtrak website glitch

    This was an annoying development. I went to log in so I could check how far my AGR 2.O points would not take me. After I signed in there was a pop up which prompted me to agree to the new terms and conditions. I agreed. And then was redirected back to the sign in page. Then I was sent back to the main page to sign in. Guess what happened?!! I signed in and had the exact same experience. This is something that should never happen in this day in age. I call it the website circle jerk.
  13. I almost missed it this morning by being to easy going about getting to the platform. About 10 minutes prior to arrival the station staff directed us to go out to the various positions on the platform. I waited expecting a second call when the train arrived. I got up to head out and the train was already in the station. By the time I walked to the 1132 car the attendant was closing the door. I knocked on the window. She had to call the conductor to get permission to open the door. Lucky for me permission was granted. Amtrak runs a tight operation in emy and it is important to listen and follow directions here. I accept complete responsibilty for this close call. I am lucky I did not miss the train.
  14. I am considering a round trip from jack London square to Fresno as a one day round trip. I would only do this if was assured of riding California cars. Thank you.
