Dining, Lounge Cars
The accommodation layout, plumbing and equipment on old sleeper cars makes them unsuitable for conversion. America's Trains sleeping cars are ex passenger coaches with modernized systems and much larger rooms.
Before America's Trains, sleeping accommodations on available cars in the USA were small with up to 12 or more rooms or compartments in a single car, most sharing bathroom facilities. America's Trains' sleeping cars have a maximum of six deluxe bedrooms each with full private bathrooms. Bedrooms are also located on other types of cars.

There are three sleeping room categories, all having private bathrooms with a shower.
- Master Suites are over 100 square feet with a queen bed that converts to a sofa and a single bed that converts to a plush lounge chair. A couple of passengers have the option of sharing or sleeping in separate beds, or a third passenger can use the single bed.

- Classic Doubles are up to 80 square feet with a relatively large lower single bed and an upper bunk that folds out of sight when not required. These rooms are ideal for single passengers traveling alone.
