Are they different from train to train? I was on Silver Meteor and it was Borenstein airline meal.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

Do amtrak points expire within 3 years from your last paid trip or does an award redemption count?

Plan ahead and save on trips between Boston and New York
Convenient, downtown-to-downtown service between Boston and New York is now available for as low as $89 aboard Acela®. Just book 14 days in advance and trade the confining limitations of air travel for a relaxing atmosphere with roomy wide leather seats, 42" of legroom, improved free Wi-Fi and a fully stocked Café car.

And if you've always wanted to ride First class, now's the perfect time. First class tickets start at $181, which includes at-seat meal/beverage service and access to our ClubAcela® lounges.

Very sneaky and bad
http://travelwithgrant.boardingarea.com/2018/03/21/amtrak-quietly-makes-big-negative-changes-to-cancellation-refund-policies-tonei/

Yes, very sneaky! I got hit with this last week. Had no idea why I was being hit by the fee. I ended up just changing it instead of cancelling. Then the snow storm hit, so I got a refund. You would think they would want to find ways to satisfy customers these days with all their bad press as of late...
