Amtrak to Return Hot Food to 2 Trains

Hot food will be coming back to the Capitol Limited and Lake Shore Limited, although Amtrak did not say when that will be.

The change is unlikely to mean a restoration of the full dining service that was removed from both trains on June 1.

In statement made to Trains magazine, Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said, “We are undertaking changes on the dining service to provide higher quality food with a modern service pattern that allows people to order what they want and have it provided when they want.”

Magliari said this means that passengers can dine in a communal way or eat their meals with a modicum of privacy in their sleeping car rooms.

“We’re putting the decision-making into our customer’s hands, versus dictating to our customers how they have to accept their food,” Magliari said in the statement.

Magliari said the hot meal service on the trains will begin after Amtrak receives feedback from passengers to understand their preferences.
