The scenery was really something to see, the staff was fantastic. We upgraded to first class and I'm glad we did. Each first class car seats 35 people and each first class car has it's own open air car that is also covered to keep you out of the sun. In regular class it looked like capacity per car was almost double so the open air car could get pretty crowded. There are things to see on both sides of the train so being able to move freely about was a real bonus and worth the premium over coach class. First class also gets a complimentary buffet (veggies, wings, sandwiches, chips, salad) better seating, champagne, water and a cash bar. On our way back most of the people in our car came in and took a little nap, the seating is much better in first class. I'm glad we upgraded, I'm usually a cheapskate but $20 seemed like a no brainer.
