TrainWeb Visitor Travelogue
Thanks for your reply on my Crescent experience. Yes, I wrote you
last winter about what I felt about the viewliner cars after reading your
This was a follow-up after my recent trip. By the way, I like your
advice on tipping. I usually tip more since it is only I and only for one
night. Mostly I am amazed at any service at all. But it is good to know
your guidelines if I were traveling longer distances and with more people.
At 53 I am not about to climb into the upper berth unless someone
else is with me. Although no one would consider me handicapped, my legs
and knees were in such bad shape from April until recently that I had to
give up my contra dancing and my walking for exercise. The public transit
with stairs I took to work was all the pain I could take. My trip north
was filled with such required situations for climbing, so no upper bunks
for me. It is so weird being older yet feeling just the same as when
young. Also, to go to doctors for a problem and having them unable to do
anything for you because nothing is "broken."
I am doing a lot better now, back to 4-mile walks and hope to dance
I would just recommend that light-sensitive sleepers like myself
take tape with them on the train.
Glad to hear that the train modules are really tough.
Aah--now I see what the problem is with the old sleepers. I guess
the stewards just tell me what I want to hear. Still, I think I will write
them about the unfairness of having to pay for double rooms. Thank you for
keeping up the web page and other info.
