This morning I boarded the east bound California Zephyr from Emeryville to Chicago. I am in the sleeping car. Outside Davis, CA we stopped for a bit, were going to help out a train that had mechanical issues. We were about to hook up when the crew was able to fix the issue, so with a slight delay we were on the way. This is the first time I’m taking a sleeper train. So far it has been great. Only issue I had was the interconnecting door between my room and the next, it was banging and rattling when the train got going. However I was able to fix it with the help of the attendant by wedging a few coat hangers. The on-board staff so far are amazing! Having a good time so far. Will update this post as I go along.
