In the photo above you can see my notebook computer on the foldout table in a Standard (Economy) Amtrak Viewliner Bedroom. This table is a bit larger than the foldout table in the Amtrak Superliner. You can also see my radio scanner, trip timer and Amtrak Travel Guide for the Amtrak Silver trains. The handle on the window is only for the emergency exit. You can also see the route schedule laying on the computer and a couple of cups in the cup holders. The cup holders in the Amtrak Viewliner are much deeper than those on the Amtrak Superliner.

After this trip I will only have one more "major" Amtrak trip to take in January 1998 to complete every mile of every major Amtrak route in the United States. I will still have some minor segments to complete such as the Amtrak Kansas City Mules, the Amtrak Empire Builder segment between Seattle and Spokane, and a few other short routes. I do expect to have those completed sometime in 1998 or 1999.
