Above are the 2 seats in the Special Bedroom. This configuration is
really identical to that in the Economy Bedroom. The seats might look
like they are closer together, but that is only an illusion created
by the rest of the Special Bedroom being so large and empty.
Above you can see the space set aside for a wheelchair. A wheelchair
can be locked to the wall so that a person can remain in their wheelchair
during travel if they wish. The lock and release mechanism is within
easy reach of the person in the wheelchair so they can operate it themself
if they wish. However, a car attendant and other Amtrak personell are
always available to help people with special mobility requirements.
You can see that everything in the Special Bedroom has been placed within
the reach of a person in a wheelchair. The coat hanger hooks have been
mounted lower. The air-conditioning/heating controls and vent lever have
been placed within reach also, as shown in the photo.
Above you can see the toilet and sink in the Special Bedroom. It has been
totally designed to be used by a person in a wheelchair. The sink has
also been placed lower to be within easy reach. The toilet and sink are
seperated from the rest of the Special Bedroom by a curtain. A wheelchair
will fit within the restroom side of the curtain when it is closed. For
those with limited mobility but not in a wheelchair, they can use either
this toilet in the Special Bedroom or the public toilet located immediately
outside the door of the Special Bedroom.
