I enjoy traveling on Amtrak's train.. The Empire Builder is my "home train" since I am from Minnesota, and have taken a few trips on it!
Wish there was a better/bigger waiting room for the Northbound track such as the Empire Builder. This area gets pretty crowded, and I feel bad for the people who has to stand and wait.. Also, these delays of the train leaving CHI is pretty sad. Seen it one too many time last winter, and we were one of them.. We arrived half hour early, and I asked, "Is it on time??" And was told Yes, it is.. then 15 min before boarding, "Oh sorry, The Empire Builder departure time has been delay, and don't know..." Almost 4 hours later, we leave at last. I am SOOO glad I happen to have a sleeper for this trip, and not have to sit in the other waiting room. Hope this delay leaving CHI will be an issue for our visit in a few weeks.

Enjoy eating in the dinning car and meeting new people and learn about them. Really bummed out you don't have Railroad French toast anymore on the Empire Builder. :-(

Will be watching! I can't wait for our trip this June on the Empire Builder going out to Seattle WA, then taking the Cascade up to Vancouver BC.
I've been on the Empire Builder 3 times going out west as far as Whitefish MT, Now I will able to say I've completed #8/#7 complete route!

We just did a trip a few weeks ago from Orlando FL to Winona MN.
We've always been on the Empire Builder train with the Superliner cars, and taking the single level car from Orlando to DC was our first time on tine single level cars, and I was really missing the SL (Sightseeing Lounge) big time!
