there are two upholstered seats facing one another (by custom, the
forward facing seat is occupied by the person in the lower berth, and
the rear facing seat is occupied by the person in the upper
berth). These seats are wide enough for two adults to sit
side-by-side comfortably. At night, the seats are converted into
full size beds. (the lower berth bed is longer and wider than the
beds in the enclosed single and double bedrooms). Privacy in each
berth is assured by heavy curtains. A maximum of 6 travelers can
be accommodated in the 3 upper and 3 lower berths per car.
Separate ladies and gents restroom facilities are adjacent, as is a
shower for use by all passengers in the car. Luggage storage is
limited to one medium size article not exceeding 9" thick and
26" long which can fit under the seat. Larger bags should be
checked for handling in the baggage car.

many trains, the Single Bedrooms alternate between two floor plans of

amenities: sofa seat. Nighttime amenities: full size bed.
The bed in the "upper style room folds down from the wall; the bed
in the "lower" style room rolls out from the wall. In
both cases, when the bed is down access to the toilet is blocked.

thick and 26" long. Larger bags should be checked for handling
in the baggage car. There is a shower for all passengers located

and blocks access to the toilet in the room.
