Amtrak Coaches
From Amtrak Site


Amtrak offers three different coach styles, Viewliners and Acela are single deck whereas Superliners are double deck coaches.

Of these, Acela are day trains, something like Intercity Express in Indian Railway. I am not covering them.

Viewliners and Superliners are used by long distance trains. Types of accommodation offered by them remains more or less same with few major differences. Viewliners do not offer family bedroom and Sightseer lounge car.

IMHO, Roomette compares very favorably to AC1 coupe. Bedroom, Family Bedroom and Accessible bedroom are unique to Amtrak (compared to IR only, as other RRs may offer similar or better accommodation).
