I think Auto Train coach passengers are less likely to be singletons - if they’re well-heeled they get a Roomette, and if not well off, they probably aren’t taking the train.
Wait, isn't the Auto Train an express overnight that's 90% sleeper and 10% dining? Why in hell does it have coach? The Auto Train would be perfect for slumbercoaches!
I suspect coach passengers skew toward families. Trying to get a family of five to Disney, hate I-95, but you didn’t have the money for a bedroom suite and Harry Potter World? Load up the SUV, drive to Lorton, and get everyone their own Superliner coach seat. That right there is the perfect market for a 6-bed couchette. Not exceptionally spacious, not especially private, and it has no amenities, but it sleeps six people for cheap.
