The dining car is 4 cars away and this is my first time walking through a moving train and passing between the cars. I have visions of old movies—outlaws and law enforcement officers jumping from car to car as the ground rushes by; to my relief (and to that of my parents) the cars are connected by fully enclosed, sturdy walkways.

After dinner we return to our rooms and discover that our porter has transformed the sitting areas into sleeping quarters. The bunk beds are spacious and cozy; each bed is equipped with a reading light as well as pouches for watches, books and glasses. A small sink stands opposite the beds, and baskets beside the sink offer soap, shampoo, mouthwash and towels. The toilet has its own small closeted room. Really, everything you need is here in a 7’ by 6’ space.
