The Superliners serve all long-distance routes, except those that go to or from New York City (the tunnel is too short).
The Superliners give better views and have more space, including usually an observatory / lounge car and usually a full-service dinning car (sometimes they’re combinded).
If you have a guaranteed connection, Amtrak will provide you a way to make that connection. Tickets in the Northeast are more expensive than elsewhere. If you want to travel extensively on Amtrak, for example if you’re going to live aboard Amtrak, I’d recommend Amtrak’s USA Rail Pass.
It may be a bus-stitution, holding the other train, a flight, or an overnight stay in a hotel. On standard class tickets, you’re allowed to cancel beforehand and receive the full value back in an Amtrak voucher . Many long distance trains are more crowded in summer. In the winter, as of 2013, it’s likely you’ll have an empty seat next to yours. The pass entitles its holder to a number of segments (ie coach class tickets) to use within either 15, 30 or 45 days.
The meal service, consist and design of all Amtrak’s trains is generally all but uniform and where it varies it’s by need and not by route. Acela, between Washington and Boston, is Amtrak’s highest speed train, averaging 70mph and reaching speeds of 150mph.
This is nice, unless you’re using Amtrak as a method of transportation and the train is running six hours late. Notice, Amtrak isn’t reporting how late the trains arrive.
You must make reservations for tickets and each ticket used counts as one segment used.
It is not valid on Acela, the Auto Train or routes numbered 7000-7999, which are through-ticketed non-Amtrak operated services such as going to Toronto on Canada’s VIA Rail or traveling on the privately operated Grand Canyon Railway.
On long-distance trains, coach seats are comparable to an airliner’s business class, quite wide, with much leg room, foot rests and leg rests.
Almost all coach seats have electric outlets and ample storage.
