Sleeping car attendant making up beds, 2016.

The City of New Orleans follows a 926-mile route that links three of the most important music capitals in America: Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans. The Superliner-equipped train passes through unique and historic regions including Illinois central farmlands, the western corner of Kentucky, the forests of Tennessee and Mississippi and the famous bayous of Louisiana.

Sleeping car attendants, such as Keisha Johnson shown above on the City of New Orleans, are responsible for the orderly maintenance of sleeping car accommodations and for providing excellent customer service. In addition to assisting customers with boarding and alighting, the sleeping car attendant makes up beds, delivers meals to a customer's room upon request, maintains the cleanliness of restrooms and prepares coffee and juices at the amenity station, among other duties.
