The City of New Orleans from New Orleans to Chicago disillusioned me on more long distance train travel. Even though the sleeping car attendant (Rion) was excellent, the dining car menu should have been titled "TV Dinner Menu". It was a farce. The choices could easily have been added to the cafe car menu since they were all microwaveable items on one small plastic plate. I use the Amtrak Mastercard but I'm converting to card that will give perks on general travel. Sadly, Amtrak is loosing a dedicated traveler due to the reduction of amenities for long distance travel. And, yes, I have contacted customer service.
