Did this video help you?

val91201: Wow, that's really tiny, a cruise ship cabin looks gigantic by comparison.

Thomas Holm: I from nj. & ny where you from

Thomas Holm: Your welcome

Thomas Holm: Hi everybody did you enjoin the video

Mark Carlson: Nice video. Thanks for sharing.

Cathy Blake: Thank you so much for your thorough tour. It answered every one of my questions!

Heru Ammen: Excellent video presentation. My Dad was a sleeping car porter from '44 to '72 (28 years) and I was fortunate to be able to ride the train with my Dad all over the country from Oakland and San Francisco.I love the train and ride it with either a roomette or deluxe sleeper to New Orleans from Charlotte, NC.. Unfortunately it's "Viewliner" class which is still cool. I'm planning a trip this summer to Seattle and look forward to riding the big boy train from DC to Chicago and transferring to the Empire Builder from Chicago to Seattle. Thanks for sharing!

commodorefan2: Is there a door there so you get some privacy?

Sam King: the roomettes actually have a slightly (1-2") longer lower bed than the bedrooms.

Anjali Sailwal: Hi All, Would any one with first hand exxperience can someone tell abt comfort factor in Rommette section of amtrak from Chicago to San Francisco.I am planning to travel with my wife on this route.

Mark Steiner: I have Broadband for a laptop and it works well on an Amtrak train. Service quallity may be more dependient on the provider. I took the Southwest Chief from Raton to Flagstaff and had almost continuous service along that stretch except in the more remote areas of Glorieta Pass near Lamy.

javalily: "Merry New Year!" Sorry,can't help but think of the "Trading Places" train scene while watching this!:D watch?v=UpqknwKbvDE&feature=related

vikingscool: Amen! I love that video that make me wish to have an experience for full bed in the training, but I couldn't because they don't have a sleeping rooms back in 1997 for my cousin's graduation.

Shawn Hardy: I can hardly wait for our trip out to Portland in June! We'll be on the Empire Builder, eventually. We're taking Amtrak from East Lansing, MI to Chicago first. Thanks for posting this.

TheMercyah: Very informative. Thanks for posting. :)

Scutter Martin: @KimKyleMary I took a backpack and a gym bag basically, and then I have one smaller bag, kinda looked like a computer bag. I kept everything in the roomette with me. They say you have to be careful because things have come up stolen before on the trains, but I left my stuff in the room when I went to the observation car and nothing was touched. So I think for the most part it is safe. On each train, they have a baggage storage area inside the train. It's usually on the lower car by the door.

howardkevinm: @KimKyleMary 2 pieces of luggage 50lb maxium weight a piece for check. its pretty hard to have something stolen if its in your room because with the curtains closed no one can tell if you are in your room or not without having to knock first and no thief is going to be that stupid.

jpsmith81: Thanks for posting this video. I've really been thinking about taking this train and seriously thinking about getting a roomette. I don't think I want to go all the way across country in coach.

marcos chavez: I liked Amtrak but never again in the back from Albuquerque to California we were in the very back damn that was a bumpy ride

zwillyc: Excellent vid. But no locks on the doors?!!

Roman Krivenko: is this ideal for 3ppl? i understand it's cramped :[ But the bedroom is just to expensive. >_<

howardkevinm: @romka4567 theres a 2 person limit for roomettes.

Scutter Martin: It was a 2 1/2 day trip total. 31 hours to chicago and 10 hours to memphis, then a 2 hour ride home. The food on the empire builder was VERY good. Hot and tasty. On the city of new orleans, not so much. And yes, I took a bunch of my own food just in case as I heard they run out some times. I am going to do a "tips to train riding" video soon with that info. I used an older version FLIP camera for this one. I have three cams right now and it takes the best video out of all of them.

XanderRush2: has anyone ever toldyou you sound like tom hanks. i love you jenny. awsome video, very helpful

kinkisharyocoasters: @Scutter Martin The lower level has four roomettes, three communal half-bathrooms, one communal shower with a changing room, luggage racks, a full-width handicapped-accessible room at the end by the lavatories (with its own sink and johnny) and a full-width family bedroom at the opposite end near the roomettes, without any plumbing. The upper level has ten roomettes, five bedrooms (including a suite pair) and one half-bathroom.

jack nasky: @DoomDalek GREAT isnt it so fun

Igentenos: yeah...they have a snack car also. i forget what kinds of snacks they sell. but we went in there and kids got a snack. there was a couple who met on train and began to drink too much, sitting in front of us. they ended up arguing. but it didnt get bad. i hope they keep the Amtrak going.

SDKoka: Very informative and well done video! The amtrak website has a virtual tour but one doesn't get a very feel for the actual size. Having a person give a tour really puts everything in perspective. Interesting to see the little built in features!

Ragrog105: Thank you, this answers a lot of questions I had. I'm heading from Milwaukee to Chico California and I was wondering about the accomodations. You answered every one of them much better than Amtraks website. Bearded people rock!

Scutter Martin: @romka4567 It would be hard for three people to fit in the smaller units. Two regular size people is about all it will fit.

Scutter Martin: LOl, well wasn't so much of a boycott. It was a little thing called a blizzard snow storm that kept me from getting across the mountains to catch my plane. This was the back up plan. :o)

Scutter Martin: @Michael55443 Yes, I am that size and it worked fine for me.

jen8933: i've riden on the empire builder. went from cinci to chicago to seattle, then sacramento.

smwokie60: The so called lake is actually the mississippi river. After leaving Minneapolis/St.Paul the train follows the river down to wisconson. It crosses the river at Red Wing Mn. Then down to La Cross Wi. it crosses Back over the black river & the mississippi again.

Anjali Sailwal: @northlanderdude Hi All, Would any one with first hand exxperience can someone tell abt comfort factor in Rommette section of amtrak from Chicago to San Francisco.I am planning to travel with my wife on this route.

Ianandsyd: Thank you for the vid mate ! Very informative ! I am travelling from NYC to New Orleans Century Viewliner in January ! Cant wait now after viewing your vid ! Cheers !

wwnnn16: This is the exact same room I had when I traveled from California to Memphis, TN.. I loved my lil room lol!!

granskare: I saw a similar arrangement on a train going south out of new york but, it had a toilet and water featjres which yours do not...we did the bedroom which has shower, toilet and wash basin...btw, all the first class has meals included...

Dddddorian: Thanks for posting

ryanb273: @mightymac63 none of the trains have wifi unless your riding the acela or alcea express

Petar Milutinović: thanks :)

ncognit02: Thank you! I'm gathering information because I'm considering doing a 1-month pass and traveling back and forth across the country. This was very helpful.

Scutter Martin: @jcho0222 I cant speak for anyone else, but I had a great experience. The attendant I had was fantastic and the food is pretty good too.

gladfan1989: @romka4567 If you want to fit 3 people in a room, the bedroom on Amtrak is your best bet.

Scutter Martin: @mightymac63 I'm not sure how wi-fi works on the train. At the time I didn't have a laptop so I didn't get to test it. I may be taking another train trip in a few weeks and this time I will have a laptop so if I do, I will make a vid about it.

Bill smith: i was wondering how quite it is can u hear the other ppl in the next room?

yayoineko: Does the train 'wobble' more on tracks than a truck on a good road?

deloreanman14: Thanks so much for posting this! I'm hoping to take the Empire Builder from Seattle to Chicago in April, mostly because I've always wanted to. I'll be traveling solo so I think this will be more than adequate for me.

SabreH1: I'm jealous I love the train. Last trip was San Antonio to Richmond.

AmtrakFlorida: @romka4567 If the third person is a child, then sort of, but you can always spend alot of time in the lounge. It's still better than flying, and let's not even mention driving.
