Re: Amtrak changes-LD Trains

Posted by shiznit1987 on Fri Aug 16 22:57:22 2019, in response to Amtrak changes-LD Trains, posted by TransitChuckG on Sun Aug 11 15:33:05 2019.

My idea was to have restaurants in the towns along the way serve the train. Here's how it'd work:

Let's say you're on the train and you're 2 hrs out from a given stop. The coach/sleeper attendant gives you an option of restaurants that will deliver to the train station (or you do this on the Amtrak website) and you place your order. Once the train pulls into station, the coach attendant brings the food on board and you can chow down on your BBQ ribs while your wife has Pad Thai.

This way, Amtrak doesn't have to handle food service *period*, and everyone can have whatever their hearts desire food wise. Plus, the political connections of having a bunch of small business owners getting business from the train means more congressional firepower.
