Pros
Amtrak gets five stars for leg room, accommodations, cleanliness. The car was quiet, allowed for respite or rest. Really like NOT DRIVING!
Cons
If Cafe Car has a way to advance to fresh sandwiches daily (like Sandwich Lady), that would be a healthy choice.
Tips
Bring bottled water. There doesn't seem to be a limit on bags, check and carry on available. Book thru Wanderu.
