AT-Auto Train Attendant
CH-Chef
LD-LSA Diner
SA-Service Attendant
FS-Food Specialist
LS-LSA Cafe

My understanding is that AT's are combination TA's (train attendant) and SA's which are unique to 52/53.

Are there any Amtrak trains that still have both a CH and a FS?

Auto-Train may. I believe there are three people downstairs in each dining car.

On some crew teams, the crew works flawlessly.  On other teams, you can hear the "not my job"  more than once.

When I first hired out, in 1984, I was an LSA on the west coast. But in Chicago my position was often referred to as an EIC (a rather heady, “Employee In Charge”). The title was already fading away at the time- I doubt you’d hear it today.
