After hanging out at the station for a few hours, we boarded the Empire Builder for the final leg of our journey home.
On a sold out train, there was no room in the observation car, but we found a great space to be in the lower level lounge car. We had the back of the car to ourselves for nearly the entire journey home.

I love how they reserve the front of the coach carriages for parties of two or more. I'm always confident that my girls and I will be seated together.
