It's TIME.... LONG OVERDUE AMTRAK NEEDS an OVERHAUL get UPDATED NEW CARS.

I Loved traveling by Amtrak. I was heartbroken.

I was taking AMTRAK (Southwest Chief) from Chicago to Albuquerque in 2007. I was going to Albuquerque for my sister's Funeral, I was really upset and needed a place to be by my self, I asked the conductor if there were any sleepers available, he said there were, I only had $ 100.00 on me, he said it would be $ 250.00. I didn't have enough. I spent most of the time in the bathroom crying. I wish I could have afforded the Sleeper, I would have had a quiet / private place to cry.
