Pros: Room and ease of moving around. Dining car and observation car. Professional, friendly, helpful staff. Cons: Cleanliness overall. Observation car was very messy. Windows dirty inside and out throughout the train. Tips: You might want to bring easy-to-carry cleaning supply's for your seat area and Observation car surfaces. There's generous room for storing carryons. Seats tilt back nicely (And you're not crowding the person behind you when you tilt back!). There's even a foot rest that lifts into place. Dining car food is decent, if pricey. Snack bar always open. Bathrooms are readily available, but negotiating steps to the lower level is tricky for little ones and older folks. Overall, my trip was very pleasant, and I look forward to my next one, a little better prepared.
