    I was assigned Room # 2 on the Lake Shore Limited train from Chicago to NYC. Bad room? Should I "modify?"

    I've had #2 on the LSL many times. That's what you get for booking early, LOL. It's a fine room. I don't think there are any "bad" rooms except those too near the coffee and shower (some prefer that convenience, I prefer the quiet further away from traffic). Enjoy your trip!

    All roomettes on Viewliners are good. #1-6 are near the center of the car.

    That's the worst room in the entire car. You better "modify" it right away. I suggest you start by bringing a plant and some pictures and your favorite mug. You know, spruce it up a bit.

    You should call Amtrak and ask if there are other rooms available, perhaps #4-7. I have asked for changes in the past and if they were available most agents will be very accommodating. #2 is not the worst room in my opinion since I always prefer the upper deck and do not like rooms on the lower floor. But each person here has there own preference.

    The Lake Shore Limited is a single level train. Thus, all rooms are on the lower level.

    Just in case you didn't get it, Mr. Advocate is being humorous. Room 2 is fine - although some artwork or maybe a throw rug would not hurt. ;)
