A friend is travelling on the LSL from SDY to Chicago and return and would like to know the configuration of the train. He has walking problems and he would like to know how far the Boston sleeper (his tickets read 448 and 449) will be from the dining car and café car. Any help appreciated and thanks.

In the past, the Boston section has been put on the head of the train at Albany and the NYP sleepers and diner and cafe are at the rear of the train.

If he can, he might want to change his tickets.

I thought sleeping car passengers could get meals delivered to their rooms.

They can, but that does not answer the question that was asked?
Not everyone wants to eat their dinner in their room. You can count on me choosing to dine in the dinner or cafe.

Two weeks ago, when I last rode the LSL - now restored to it's usual configuration (split/joined at ALB) - the Boston section is in the front, and the NY section in the rear. The consist was 448/449 BOS (Baggage, Sleeper, Cafe/BC, 2 coaches), 48/49 NYP (4 coaches, diner AKA first class lounge car, 2 sleepers, baggage). I suspect the 4th coach to/from NYP is, by now, gone until the holidays.

bratkinson,

Thanks very much for the LSL configuration which I will send to my friend. Exactly what he wanted to know.
