Corridor in Amtrak Sleepers. You can see that each room has a sliding door with windows
When you arrive in your Amtrak Sleeper, you will find a fold-down
table-top between the chairs with a white linen table-cloth and live
fresh flowers! As you can see, there is plenty of room for a notebook
computer and even an electrical outlet available so you don't have to
worry about battery life.
You will also find a couple of pillows and coat hangers in your room
waiting for you, and even a basket of soap, shampoo and conditioner.
You will find plenty of clean towels in your room too!
These are the controls that you will find in every bedroom. The
personal light is similar to those in airplanes. It can be turned
on and off and aimed. You will find one of these by each seat in the
room plus one by conveniently located to each bed when the room is
converted at night to the sleeping configuration. There is also a
heat/cool control and open/close vents that can be adjusted in each
bedroom individually to your preference. You will also find a main
overhead light that can be tuned on, off, or placed into a dim blue
night light state. There are also several channels of audio where
you can select just music, just announcements, or music and announcements
combined (most prefered). There is even a button to call the Car
This is the view out the back of the last Amtrak Sleeping Car.
If you walk this far in the train, you probably don't want to
walk any further!
This is the cabinetry that you will find in room #1, the Car Attendant's
Room in some Superliner Sleepers. Most trains do not have this cabinetry.
Friends outside of a Superliner II Sleeping Car.
This is the stairway from the lower level to the upper level of the
Superliner Sleeping Car. There are handrails on both sides. Two right
angle turns are made on the way up. Despite appearances, it is not
difficult for the average person to carry suitcases up and down these
stairs. Since baggage can be checked and there is even a luggage rack
on the lower level for full-size suitcases that you wish to keep with
you on the train, you probably won't even be moving much luggage up these
steps. Usually people just take small carry-on bags all the way up these
stairs and directly into their room.
This is a view out a vestibule door on the lower level of the Sleeping Car.
The vestibule runs right through the middle of the car on the lower level
at right angles to the corridor. If both vestibules were open, there would
be a passageway from the outside on one side of the train to the outside on
the other side of the train. Both doors are seldom open since the station
platform is usually on only one side of the train. In stations with
multiple platforms, there are usually tracks on the other side of the train
for those other platforms.
This is a view down the corridor on the lower level of the Sleeping Car.
This photo was taken from where the vestibule intersects with the corridor
that runs down the center of the train. On the lower level, there are 4
Economy Rooms and one Family Room in one direction down the corridor. In
the other direction is 3 bathrooms, a shower/changing room, and a Special
Bedroom for passengers with limited mobility. In this picture we are
looking down the corridor in the direction of the restooms which you can
see doors to on either side. At the end is a sliding door that closes off
the Special Bedroom from the lower level corridor. On the upper level,
the corridor connects at each end into other cars of the train. Since the
Family Room and Special Bedroom at each end of the lower level of the train
stretch across the entire width of the train, you cannot pass from car to
car of the train on the lower level. You have to go to the upper level to
move from one train car to the next.
Above is the temperature control that you will find in every room.
