Pros: Beautiful and scenic. Cons: I wish the train served Coors light. 😁. Tips: The Roomettes are awesome but coach is just as good. Their dining car offered decent food and was quite tasty. They offered vegetarian options too! Pros: Beautiful and scenic. Cons: I wish the train served Coors light. 😁. Tips: The Roomettes are awesome but coach is just as good.
