I recently had to take the Amtrak from Chicago, Illinois to Northern California. I took the California Zephyr train for my trip. Since my husband is a manager of over 60 people, he had to stay home for work! I had to return home for a family emergency. With that, we decided that I had to take our son with me. Our son has Autism, so we chose Amtrak to travel. We stayed in a sleeper car that has a bathroom/shower, sink and a seat that folds out into a bed.
