We were so excited to get going on our vacation, that we reached the station a couple of hours early. Everything went smoothly checking in, and we were directed to the "First Class" waiting room. (!) We didn't know that reserving a roomette put you into first class!
It was crowded when we got there, but by the time our train left, it looked like this. Our roomette was room 8 in car 331; we learned that because we had to sign the menu ticket with that number at lunch every time. We left right on time.
Here we are leaving the city!
Because the phone is working.
