Pros: Loaded departure train on schedule. With some disability, l struggled with stairs. Was not offered lower floor seating. Surprised that freighters take precedence over passenger train. Many slowdowns and stops. Seats comfortable to sit, not so much to sleep. Food ... Pros: Loaded departure train on schedule. With some disability, l struggled with stairs. Was not offered lower floor seating. Surprised that freighters take precedence over passenger train. Many slowdowns and stops. Seats comfortable to sit, not so much to sleep. Food in dining car was VG!! Liked the snack bar alternative, but required using the steps. Cons: Offer someone disabled like me lower floor seating. Snack bar better on upper level? Warmer temp in cars! Tips: Bring blanket, dress for cool in cars.More
