We didn’t get any breakfast

The train was very nice and clean. The service was fantastic. Dining car was fun. They confused our order and brought more food and refused to take it back. Kind of funny. The bathroom was fine, we loved the service when taxi cab drivers were already waiting for us outside our train car! No hassle. Maybe too many things on a little table of our compartment?
