Amtrak Coast Starlight

Pros: Very good service on the train. On time. Cons: When we entered the train station we were a bit confused as to where to go and what to do. A gentleman was shouting instructions but we it took a while for us to realise that we had to get boarding cards. Maybe if there was a sign as you entered the station.

Pros: Scenery. Cons: Seeing the tent-cities. DEPRESSING!! It needs to all go away but I also know there are alot of people trying to come up with solutions. Tips: Sit back and enjoy. We ordered pizza to go and had it on the train.

I was in car 11 which was very close to the lounge car and the service car where I purchased a muffin and drink. Also the conductor told me when we were close to Centralia so I could get ready to disembark the train.
