    my ex and I took trains from SF to San Diego to Iowa to Glacier NP through Portland back to S, visiting friends and relatives along the way. We were gone 2 or 3 months I think. We slept in our seats. I was younger and more flexible then! Now I would really want to lie down, but sleeper cars are costly on Amtrak! I've never had one.

    In Norway a few years ago I went on a whirlwind train trip--I wanted to see the fiords -- and treated myself to a sleeper car just for the hell of it. It was cozy and comfortable but I didn't get any sleep because I was worried I'd sleep through the early morning stop in Oslo, I needn't have worried as there were speakers in all the cars to announce the stops and wake us up.
