Does the lounge car appeal to you? Would you mind if it was removed from your consist? I'm wondering aloud since the new high speed equipment will not have seats in the café car(unless something dramatically changes.) This means a push towards at seat dining. Looking at the eastern long distance fleet, the lounge is for first class passengers only. Granted, there is a café with tables to utilize but the next order for equipment is on the horizon. Lounge cars are non revenue items and their day may be over, particularly if there is a push towards corridor type service. At the end of the day, does it make or break a trip?
