    Do TE SCAs go the whole CHI-LAX Route? (I forgot)

    My last trip the sleeper attendant went lax to Dal spent 24 hours and caught the train back. She said the change out is either SAS or Dallas it varies.

    It’s interesting taking the entire route Lax to Chi and seeing the two different crew base employees. Completely different vibe Lax to Sas as compared to Sas to Chi.

    Previous (2015 most recent) east bound trips from LAX, the SCA in the 422 sleeper changed in SAS. Interestingly, that original LAX SCA continued to Fort Worth as a coach attendant!

    The lA based diner crews on the Sunset Limetrd are usually good. I’ve had a few indifferent scas on all segments of that route. Of course Chicago based crews take it to a lower level.
