I just got back from Washington, D.C. today. Took Amtrak. Coach from Chicago-Washington, then Sleeper on the return trip.

I'm very happy. Our train arrived at Washington 5 minutes ahead of schedule (it was as much as 30 minutes ahead at some stations), and we got back into Chicago about 45 minutes ahead of schedule!

I don't think I can ever go back to Coach though. Sleeper cars are amazing. Aside from having an actual bed (which I, at 6'0" was able to stretch out across), the bathrooms are larger, there's a shower, meals are included, drinks are included, there's a newspaper under the door each morning, Priority boarding, Club Acela lounge access at station, and you can't hear all of your neighbors. W00t.

P.S. Has someone been redecorating the Superliners? They used to be hideous shades of brown and tan with the occasional garish blue. Now every car is decorated in blue, wood paneling, and fake granite. It actually looks very nice, though there are still a few hints at the what the cars used to look like.

Pics, of course.

Only in America can you see a TGV and a Genesis in the same photo.
