@jpakala @Evilkitty @RobMartin1 I would rather not have a sink and toilet in the room. As long as there is plenty room to sit and sleep, that's all I care.

@RobMartin1, Have you ever use the roomette on the Southwest Chief? just wondered what they were like. I will be sharing with another person
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Roomette with a View (or Two)
@jpakala @Evilkitty @RobMartin1 I will be on the Southwest Chief .
@RobMartin1 I sure hope I am going to like the roomette. I can't afford the bigger room. i'm using guest rewards points to get the roomette. Thats 40,000 points round trip from Effingham, Il to San Diego, Ca. i can't come up with the 80,000 for the bigger room. I will be travelling this route 1 time a year for 4 years. So the 40,000 is the best I can do. I'm 5'6" and weigh about 200 lbs. My sister-in-law that is coming with me is bigger then me. So hope it will be ok for us.
@ChrisRodriguez2 they are bumpy but not bad. At least you can move around.

@Driver20 @Evilkitty @tampacate I meant the tour on the Amtrak site. That would have showed you how small the rooms are. If you needed a bigger room. The bedroom might be big enough. Not sure. Just seen them on the tour. But the bedroom is more expensive. I have been using my points to get my roomette. I will be taking the Southwest chief and the City of New Orleans

@tampacate That don't make since why they didn't. If they took to roomette tour they would have seen the room is tiny. What did they expect it to be large enough to dance in. If that were to happen they would only have room for 1 roomette per car. At least you can have free food and a place to sleep. . That should make you happy enough. If no on came to fix my bed up then I would do it myself. Kind of like to do it my self anyway , That way I can go to sleep when I'm ready. Some people you can not make happy no mater what you do or say, . Oh well. I'm looking forward to my trip from Effingham, Il to San Diego , Ca. in March. Taking the roomette for the first time. And I bet I will be happy with whatever size it is. Can't wait.
@DanielLilly.....I traveled on the trains leaving San Diego to La. I loved the view there. I was on the Southwest Chief from La to Chicago, but I rode coach. Beautiful scenery. I will be riding in the sleeper my next trip

@vernwash2012 @Evilkitty - Ty. I plan on enjoying my trip. I always do. I dread it when the trip is over. I rode coach from San Diego, California to Effingham, Illinois. I did ok. I had my puzzle books, MP3 player and my portable DVD player. I couldn't afford the food on the train then, but I survived. I brought plenty to snack on til I got to the trains stations to get food there. I decided to try the sleeper this time. If I like the sleeper planning on taking my mother in law with me on my next trip. And I can afford the food on the train this trip in March. And I am planning on taking tons of pictures to remember my trip.

@ChuckFarina love the Southwest chief. Never had the roomette, but still was a nice ride. I going on it in March and trying the roomette this time
@ChuckFarina I wouldn't want the restroom in the room. I rather go down the hall
@GeorgeAndresChota I don't see what the problem is with the train. I always had a great time on the train. People and the attendants were all nice and helpful. I think the ones that seem to be having the problems are expecting way too much. I get better help on the trains then I do at Wal-mart. If they would try to sit back and enjoy the ride they may find out train travel is great
@vernwash2012 I will find out how the sleeper and food is in March. I traveled long distanced, but I was in coach. So this will be my first time in a sleeper
