The Points Guy had a pretty good look a the new V-II sleeping accommodations and upgraded linens/amenities that will be rolling out. https://thepointsguy.com/news/amtrak-sh ... -services/
There's definitely some good stuff here. The one huge change I'd wish they'd make for the Amfleet II seats are the flip out "wings" for the head that many airlines have now. They make resting much easier by supporting your head so it doesn't flap around.
I've got to say, while the amenity packs look nice, they appear FAR from green. Many hotels are moving AWAY from such single-use packages. I hope those are optional.
That said, I LOVE the new table design. Finally getting rid of the weird raised edge that makes using a too wide laptop impossible.
And more power is excellent.
More and more I think with some of these changes, Amtrak really needs to be looking at the add-on order. I still maintain in certain routes, the sleeper can be quite viable. (and more baggage car options! Please!)
Speaking of which, I heard a rumor the 66/67 IS getting a "dorm/baggage" which would be most excellent, returned baggage service AND sleeping.
