Amtrak Empire Builder trip Seattle to Red Wing MN


Boarding at King Street Station in Seattle. The train was delayed two hours, so we were ready to ride!

The first time we ever got a room in  a sleeper car. So nice!

LOVED the full sized shower! We all took a lot of showers!

Lots of room in the family room
checking out the sleeper car

Complimentary champagne!

Dinner reservations

Winner winner chicken dinner! Mary Emma had this both nights.


Russ and I shared the steak and salmon each night. The steak was best done rare to mid rare, which is just how I love it, and the salmon was a generous portion with a seasoned sear. Very good food!


Everyone on their ipods!

Getting ready for bed.
