If the rumors are true and the LSL is next in line to get VIIs after the Silver Service then eventually we'll see the VIIs in use on this route.How can this be possible? Amtrak is resuming daily operation. Amtrak has only 20 of the Viewliner II sleepers delivered, with a total of 25 to come onto the roster. Daily service for the Silver Star and Silver Meteor will require 12 sleeper for the Silver Meteor and at least 8 sleepers for the Silver Star (3 sleepers per train set per Silver Meteor, 2 sleeper per train set per the Silver Star). So that's 20 Viewliner II's right there assigned. That leaves five left, and the Lake Shore Limited would require 9 (NINE) Viewliner Sleepers for daily service (3 sleepers per train set per Lake Shore Limited).

But I had heard that plan was scrapped. I think the best one could hope for is a refurb of the Viewliner I Sleeper, even though it should be a “rebuilt” from top to bottom that would include the elimination of the in-room toilets at the roomettes and two communal restrooms where the attendant’s room used to be etc.
