    1. Thank you! It’s true that the train itself does not have WiFi, but you can catch it on and off as you travel. I would not try to stream a movie, but overall I didn’t have trouble texting or using the internet.

  1. Thanks for the great review. I just finished a fantastic trip on the CZ from Emeryville to Chicago.
    Your description of the roomette experience mirrored mine, and prepared me for the minor inconveniences which were easily resolved.
    Your suggestions for items to bring were on point. I’m going to follow your blog for future adventures.

  2. I just completed a trip on the CZ from Emeryville to Chicago. It was a fantastic experience! Your review was extremely helpful and accurate. I too was a single traveler in a roomette, and every suggestion you made to prep for the trip was on point.
    Thanks for taking the time to publish this guide.

  3. I love your review! My husband and I only rode the Zephyr from Denver to Glenwood Springs, so we didn’t get a chance to experience the sleeper portion. Good that you noted that dining is only included with sleeper accommodations. There is a small cafe available.

  4. Hi. Thanks for your commentary. I have taken the CZ from Chicago to Emeryville, stayed overnight at the hotel across the Emeryville track, and then gotten right back on the same train with the same crew and come home. I’ve done that 7 times. It’s a wonderful trip. Some of the irritations you speak of are resolved in other cars I think. The train attendant can do some things with the temperature. Again, thanks. I enjoyed the pictures and can’t wait to do the trip again next year. (It’s my traincation. I do it every year now.)

  5. Being seated with other passengers in the dining car is a time-honored tradition. It’s a great way to meet other passengers. One has to accept this.
