So nice to see the Red Carpet next to Hickory Creek.

Pic of cafe prep counter reminds me that Amtrak needs to wake up to the espresso/latte market. Easy to operate/premium price, what's not to like.

Excellent photos. But since when has 8400 been named for Indian-no-place?

Since its rebuilding into the Viewliner diner prototype. The new ones will be named for state capitals.

I've jokingly said that putting the Viewliners on display has increased my desire to burn my Amtrak Guest Rewards point on a sleeper (to Chicago) sooner rather than latter. OTOH, seeing one in person has made me realize that unless my mom travels in coach, she's not riding Amtrak to Miami or Atlanta given the small sizes of the bedrooms and her claustrophobia.
