Roomette 007 - Coast Starlight View

Recommended Posts

Look at the diagram, 7 is on the opposite side of the car as the bedrooms. If, as with my observations from previous trips, I am in Bedroom E on the west side of the train, 7 is on the east. On the return trip, the bedrooms have been on east side of the train so 7 will be on the west.

 

This is based on my experience riding the CS a few times and yes, I am fully aware the cars may be oriented either way.

I get that 7 is on the opposite side of the car, but, and not to get caught up on this, the car shouldn’t be pointing one way or another. So yes, if the Bedrooms are on the west side of the train, roomette 7 is east, but that’s irrelevant since it shouldn’t be pointed in that direction necessarily.

I saw that, but you seemed to be saying that Roomette 7 will usually be on the east side of #14. Thats incorrect - it will just as often be the other way around.

Not necessarily. While it can be random, there are some tendencies that people with actual riding experience (i.e. not random internet people) can discern.

They don't take the train sets apart at each endpoint and randomly put them back together again, so there's more consistency as to which side #7 will be on then there is inconsistency. Then only time it may be reversed is if a car is bad ordered and a repacement car is added to the train set in reverse of what it's replacing.

Responding to a previous poster, no question that Bedroom A is a bit more "tight" than the others. But, it is still comfortable with 2 persons occupying the accommodation.

 

As to the lower level Superliner Roomettes, the accessibility and number of restrooms as well as the shower are more important to me than having to climb up/down the narrow stairs to the upper level for the use of those amenities. In scenic locations, an upper level Roomette might be better. But, for views from both sides of the train--which I think is better than just from the side of my Roomette--you will find me in the SSL.
