I did this back in Feb. It's a lot of fun. That said, not sure if it would still be fun given COVID since you're still sharing bathrooms and dining rooms on a compact train with little circulation

I'm interested, but i'm not sure how this works, do any SD'ers have experience with round trips?

Is it similar to cruising in that you have "ports of call" where you can get off and wander for a few hours or are they fast 1 hour stops not really allowing for quick sightseeing?

Are you able to stay overnight somewhere and catch the next route out?

You can plan layovers with a RailPass, which provides travel for a set number of days, but otherwise, there are no stops or layovers with the exception of changing trains or a 15 minute stop at a limited number of stations. If changing trains at a major station, there is frequently a layover of some hours, assuming your train got there on time or your departing train leaves on time (delays on both of these can be very common and annoying!!)

Still costs more than airfare, and takes longer. And some idiot politicians seem to think they build a new system faster for cheaper. Sigh.

As much as I want to enjoy seeing the country by rail...

Not sure why you decided to turn this into a politirant - you ride the rail to experience a new kind of travel. If you want to get to your destination quickly it isn't for you, the entire point is to live in the moment and watch the world go by. Dinner with strangers can be incredibly fun, or you can tip your steward nicely and have your meals brought to your room. The price is indeed expensive but there isn't anything else quite like it.

Bring a THC pen, a Smoke Buddy Jr, and pretend the internet never existed. It'll do you good.

(Try doing that on an airplane.)

Hmm, you're right. I guess if you smoke, this is a great deal. I'll keep that in mind if I decide to become a stoner.

Not sharing bathrooms in a roomette, you have your own.

The dining cars / food options have declined, IMO. It's BYOF any time I do a trip that is 5+ hours.

Regardless, hard to endorse any sort of mass transit as things stand today.

you're thinking of the bedrooms/super roomettes. Regular roomettes do not have a bathroom

My only difficulty with this has always been not knowing train destinations from a particular city. If you set From, is there a way to see To options?

In my case, I could leave from Union Station LA, or a station closer to me in Orange County but I don't have the information needed to make that decision.
