Trip Report: The Crescent From NYC’s Penn Station to New Orleans Union Terminal

Fortunately I actually managed a couple of hour nap in the Acela Lounge at Penn Station after getting NO sleep on the plane.

East Coast sleepers are a single level, giving more headroom in the roomettes (still heavy on the “ette”). With a second set of windows near the top so when you are in the upper bunk you get a view.

Settled in.

Had to wait a bit for our car attendant to get us set up with ice in the room for our cocktails – perfect use for the in-room sink that folds down out of the wall!

With both the sink down and the toilet lid up.

We finally figured out where to stash our bags – turns out there is a shelf that extends out into the hallway ceiling.

If you are in the sleepers – food is complimentary in the dining car (sadly, not the wine). And it’s all prepared in this rolling kitchen:

Now for some random food shots:

Overall, the food isn’t as good as on ViaRail going through Canada – maybe that’s why I don’t have many shots of it!

But the sunrise/sunsets were worth photographing…

Thirty plus hour (the train was an hour and a half late) we are in New Orleans for next part of our adventure.

Uber to The Avenue Plaza!
