I am somewhat of a night owl because I work nights, so while everyone else is crashed out I thought I would do some blogging.
There are so many empty seats on this train that I set Lynda up in an area that had two empty seats together so she could get some rest. I took a walk to the dining car and met one of the dining stewards name Shari and she hooked me up with a nice hot cup of coffee, the car was closed but she was nice enough to accommodate me with a cup.
While I was sitting in the dining car enjoying my coffee, another employee came by and told me they would be taking on a few more coach cars and a "lounge" car in Spokane. She proceeded to tell me that the car would serve snacks and beverages throughout the night 24 hours a day, great for a night owl like me! I will try and get some pictures in the lounge car when we get it.
They start serving breakfast at 6:30am and we should be going through Glacier MT. about that time so it should be quite scenic!
