They have recently posted some new videos on this subject on the official Amtrak YouTube channel.

I cannot tell the difference from before Covid. Still dirty and sometimes smelly too.

Cleaning and sanitizing is never a bad idea of course, but it does little to nothing with regard to preventing the transmission of COVID-19.

They clean during the duration of every train's trip right?

Bring your own wipes. Problem solved. I've been in three Superliner sleepers and two viewliners since the virus started. All with one exception appeared to be clean and smelled clean. One viewliner was filthy. My Clorox wipe was black after the initial wipe down. I called it to the attention of the car attendant. He apologized and came back with a spray bottle and some more wipes. Said the original intended car was probably bad ordered at the last minute and this was the replacement. No way of knowing if that was true or not.

that's my worry, it needs to be clean 100% of the time now and forever.

Until they remove train cleaning from the mechanical department it won’t change. Train cleaning is on the bottom of the list for mechanical, only once all of the defects are corrected and duct tape properly applied are the coach cleaners allowed access. In many cases at that point it is very close to departure time and the cars only receive a cursory wipe down. The Mechanical department adamantly refuses to service equipment upon arrival, the rolling stock lies in wait in the yard until it is scheduled, only at that point do they begin work, in many instances that is too late to effect proper repairs and cleaning. In many airline environments, the Customer Service Department is charged with aircraft cleaning and all aircraft inspections and defects are addressed the minute the last passenger departs the aircraft not just before the first passenger boards.

Would make much more sense to do the work immediately upon arrival... is there a reason they do it that way?
