It’s morning in Indiana. Some passengers aboard the westbound Capitol Limited have made their way to the lounge car to get a better view of the passing countryside.
Although No. 29 has a full-service dining car, many Amtrak coach passengers don’t patronize it. They either bring something to eat with them or grab something in the cafe car.
Often that might be a cup of coffee and a muffin. Then it is back upstairs to find a table or empty seat, or return to their coach.
Then again, if the train is on time into Chicago Union Station, there is a McDonald’s there and it will still be serving breakfast.
But the view is better from the Sightseer Lounge while you eat.
