I booked a ticket from san bernardino ca to modesto a nine hour trip, when recieving confirmation there was a notice that "all food service will be paid by debit or credit card no cash" anticipating a snafoo I brought along a Nissan cup a soup expecting hot water readily available, 6 hours into my trip I am feeling the effects of not eating all day I venture to the cafe, low and behold

NO FOOD SERVICE!!!!!!! Worse yet no hot water and conductors refused to heat my cup of soup in either of the two readily available micro waves and was made an example of by the conductor who while announcing the next stop informed the entire train that anyone disembarking to purchase snacks or food would be left behind adding

"There is no food or snacks available" this is pathetic if I manage to make the last three hours without complications I will be surprised, I called the customer service line and the response I received was and I quote

" And what is it you would like me to do?

Best to pack some sandwiches and apples and fresh fruit and drinks on your Amtrak ride. The prices of the food and drink in the Cafe car are Highway robbery, only over the rails so I guess yoy could say they are train robbery prices.

I once paid Amtrak's high prices for a sandwich and snapple on my train ride from Oakland to Bakersfield and I vowed never again.

I recently rode Amtrak from New Orleans to Lafayette and I enjoyed some fruit cups and an apple on my ride. I was very hungry and would have very much have enjoyed getting a sandwich and a drink from the cafe car, but I didn't want to let them rip me off.
