What kind of rooms are available on Amtrak’s Auto Train, and how are they identified.
There are four types of rooms on the Auto train. Numbers identify roomettes and the family room. Superliner bedrooms and accessible bedrooms use letters. The train could be set up in either direction, meaning the sleepers or coaches can be upfront, and if that is the case, read the lineup below backward.
What side will rooms on Amtrak’s Auto Train be on?
