While you are planning a long trip by train, the question of how to maintain good hygiene comes into play to anybody that travels for more than a few hours straight.
There are many people asking if AmTrak trains have showers, while the general answer is yes, it depends what train you take and how long your trip will be.
AmTrak has many long routes around the country, and depending what kind of ticket you purchase your seat might not have showers available.

which are used for long distance trips, there are few types of these cars, coaches cars, dining cars, lounges and sleeping cars.
Depending on your destination, AmTrak’s Superliner or Viewliner sleeping cars might offer up to 8 different types of rooms out of which a few are equipped with showers. The price difference can be significant.
