The economy of travel.
The angle of the seats when reclining could be flatter.
Make sure you have plenty of time. My train was 2-3 hours late both directions.
June 28, 2019Business
The schedule on paper was good and in reality was terrible because of the terrible time delays of 2 hours and 3 hours respectively on my to and fro trip (Omaha to Denver)
If only Amtrak cared about people more than freight, there could be less time delays.
Please plan at least for a 2 hour delay on your trip.
