Stations that handle checked baggage
Each ticketed guest can carry on up to 2 pieces of reasonable size and weight (no more than 50 pounds).
If you are traveling between 2 stations where checked baggage is handled, you may
check up to 3 pieces per guest--again, of reasonable size and weight.
Check the station list in the table at right. If your originating
point and destination are both listed, then you can check baggage
for your trip.
In fact, when checked baggage is available,
you are strongly encouraged to carry
only what you need en route and check the rest.

P.S. If you have a large number of pieces to ship, and if checked
baggage service is available for your trip, consider Amtrak's
small package express service.
Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the train, including sleeping
cars, coaches, lounges and dining cars.
Amtrak's smoking policies are subject to change. For the latest information,
