Very good trip in the "quiet car". Glad that you have something like this on Amtrak. Makes for a nicer trip for us "older folks".
Can't think of anything right now. The staff were very helpful and informative and everything went very smoothly.
If you must bring "BIG" suitcases, be a whole lot more careful getting them down the aisles!
