I finally convinced my husband to come with me on a one-way trip from TRE-TAC next May (we're flying back). My first trip entirely across country (have taken other long-distance trips) in sleeper, his first long-distance train trip ever. We'll be taking a Northeast Regional to WAS, the Capitol Limited to CHI, and the Empire Builder to SEA. I've ridden several Amtrak trains in coach so I know the basics, but with two of us traveling I have a couple of questions: 1. He uses a CPAP machine. It's carried in a small case and can fit on a nightstand. Would a roomette be able to accommodate this, or should we try for a bedroom? 2. I haven't yet decided whether or not to take a Cascades train to Tacoma where my family will pick me up and we can rent a car there, or take the light rail to SeaTac and rent a car from there (where it will be more expensive). Does the King Street station have any sort of baggage storage for waiting time between the arrival of the Empire Builder and an afternoon Cascades train? 3. I know I can't reserve specific rooms online. If a bedroom is better than a roomette, is Bedroom A a good option for two people? Does the lower bed fit two, or should I plan to sleep in the upper bunk if he needs the space for his CPAP machine? (Same question for any bedroom really, but I think he'd feel more comfortable if we can get a room without a sliding door between it and another room). Thank you for any answers you can provide. I've ridden long-distance coach before but never been in the sleepers and I know to keep my expectations low and enjoy any good service that comes my way.
