    Track Condition

    Is it just me or are track conditions deteriorating? I’m on the northbound Silver Star and it’s been a rough ride. I have a roomette so as if trying to get some sleep. A few times last I was almost thrown out of bed, the lower berth. And a few time it seems like the wheels hit hard against...

    Silver Star Cancelled Today (11/12/20)

    I received notification that the Silver Start has been cancelled for today I was traveling from DLD to BAL. I was rebooked for tomorrow. Just an FYI! I guess the main concern would be flooding. Am I correct?

    Is Silver Star still running?

    Yesterday I booked the trip on the north bound SS. I got a roomette for increased safety because of C-19, How are they doing meals?

    Auto Train Meals

    I had a Buick Enclave and I took it to FL and back several times using the AutoTrain. Never had any issues relative to the size of the vehicle.

    Thank you for posting the schedule. I was looking for the Silver Star for a Tuesday or Wednesday trip north. Now I understand.

    Is Silver Star still running?

    I've traveled the Silver Star between DLD and BAL often. I like the hours of the Silver Star because it gets into BAL in the late afternoon. I know there have been some changes to the timetable but it appears as though the Silver Meteor is the only option. Am I missing something or is this...

    Auto Train Meals

    Thanks for the info. Which lead to another question. Has the capacity of the train been reduced to increase social distancing? I was hoping to get a bedroom and I see on many dates the bedrooms are sold out. I was surprised at that considering travel in general has been reduced. Any input...

    Auto Train Meals

    I am considering taking the Auto Train within the next several weeks. I have a few questions relative to dining during this pandemic: 1. Are "standard" meals being served? 2. If so, what is the seating arrangement (social distancing)? 3. Is there an option to eat your meals in your sleeping...

    Richard Anderson replacing Wick Moorman as Amtrak CEO

    Speaking of Anderson, Jim Mathews, president of the Rail Passengers Association, a national advocacy organization for train travelers, sees an irony. “He was brought in to make Amtrak operate as if it were a profit-making company,” Mathews says. “He looked everybody in the eye and said, ‘OK, are...

    Richard Anderson replacing Wick Moorman as Amtrak CEO

    I don't know how long he will last as head of Amtrak but after listening to the entire 2 hour plus testimony in front of congress I was impressed by his use of data to support his decisions. I personally don't like some of those decisions but he is, after all, trying to follow government...
