Pros: many aspects 1. visit while travel. with both my sister{who also traveled on Amtrak from Oregon to visit me} and fellow passengers. 2, eating and drinking while traveling, while viewing the ride. 3. the safety of it all. my car was parked safely.my luggage traveled safely and when we returned we were offered assistance to our car, , ,Thank you . Cons: for me it would need better, healthier food items to micro heat, or more choices on fresh fruits or veggies. also an anti bacteria wipe while boarding or offered with food purchase. Tips: germs exit ..wipe down your area before and after..be careful be clean, be kind. No naked feet on eating trays.
