Travelled from San Francisco to Seattle overnight on a tour to Alaska. It was an experience not to be missed. The food was great, the staff helpful and friendly, and the seating in the dining car, whereby you were put with perfect strangers meant we met and enjoyed the company of several Americans and learned quite a bit about American life. The "roomettes" were as we had been warned on the small side, but this added to the whole travel experience. I would, given the opportunuty, travel on this train again...there's nothing like it here in the UK, because the country is so much smaller.
