Greetings from Martinsville, West Virginia. Of course, the town is actually rolling by me right now. I'm sitting in a Sleeper car with my girlfriend Allyson and it's a little tight. We're essentially in two seats facing each other with a big picture window and some hooks for clothing. It's called a Roomette, which you can tell by the suffix means its pretty small.
The Lounge car is pretty cool. It has panoramic seats. We have 7 PM reservations in the dining car, which I'm looking forward to. So far most of the passengers seem to be tourists from the UK and seniors. I'll write more in a bit. It's rude to type on the computer when you're 2 feet from another person who's looking right at you.
