dining(eating) while riding the rails
Sun, 09/6/09 11:24 PM
This summer I spent a month riding the rails between D.C. and San Jose. I took the Canadian from Toronto to Vancouver, the Coast Starlight from Seattle to San Jose, the Zephyr from Emeryville to Chicago and the Limited from Chicago to D.C. I noticed the menus on Amtrak never changed. The same 4 choices of entree, 3 of dessert, and 2 of apps. Basically microwaved and ill-prepared. The Canadian was another story. Basically gourmet meals served in a relaxing atmosphere. Night and day differences. Any thoughts?
