Pros: I LOVED how smooth the ride was. Taking the train is seriously an amazing way to travel. Legroom is unbelievable. You can cross your legs, stretch them completely out, I'm 5 11" and had more than adequate room, I'd even go as far as saying they waste space with how much is given to each passenger. The seats were clean and comfortable, the temp inside was perfect, many complained about it being to hot in reviews but I beg to differ. The time it takes and delays are the only negative aspect to train travel as far as I'm concerned. The viewing car is absolutely spectacular. Windows could have been cleaned but was still fun to watch to scenery. I didn't shedule food in dining car but had a bite from the a la carte train. Not the best but decent. I cannot wait to take another trip somewhere on the rails, very unique way to travel. Cons: Better food. Cleaner viewing windows.
