Got my email...I am sure that goes for a coach seat....I didn't look what roomette and rooms go for but I'd hope they are cheap too.

They sometimes do include discounted roomettes and bedrooms too in the auto train sales but no mention of it in this one might just be coach.

You are likely correct.  Sampling a few days in July and August shows the $19 coach fare on all days, and only one day with a roomette under $400. 

The trains appear 30% to 50% full in both directions, which suggests sleepers are mostly full, and coaches are mostly empty.

Can you buy just a coach seat, without the auto?

Nope, on the auto train you have to bring a car or motorcycle, that's what it's there for. Of course it's the best LD train Amtrak has. And I believe that might be how they can sell a coach seat for 19 dollars...they get your auto fare and any food and drinks you might buy from the coach class dining car. ( Still cannot I don't think buy a meal from the First Class diner! though many would like that to come back.)
