What Have I Done? – My First Amtrak

Amtrak Train
I boarded the Sunset Limited Amtrak train from Phoenix (Maricopa) to Los Angeles for an overnight ride. My thoughts from my first Amtrak experience (It is my understanding that the experience on Amtrak varies greatly on each line):

  • The staff treated us like royalty because we had a sleeper car
  • The train is taller than I though it would be
  • I expected the other passengers to be train enthusiasts, they were not
  • A sleeper car is too small for two grown men
  • It’s hard to sleep when being violently shaken all night
  • You can bring your own beer
  • We had fun
  • I wouldn’t do it again, but I enjoyed the adventure
