    Changes to check in times (Auto Train) ?

    In the past (our few experiences) I thought that they wanted people to have their cars checked in by 1:30. We board today in Sanford, and I just looked at our tickets: Allow plenty of time to get there. All passengers and vehicles must be checked in by 2:30pm on the day of travel. Has this...

    Auto Train Meals

    Never cared for the all day breakfast - I wish they'd offer some regular food items (burgers/fries) in the morning !!

    Auto Train Meals

    Rode southbound last month and due for a round trip next month. We enjoyed dinner in our bedroom. Salads are no longer offered (cited COVID, of course). Enjoyed the cod again, picked at the vegetable medley (like always... yuk), and then had the lava cake w/ice cream... TASTY! I wish they'd just...

    Alton Brown went on an Amtrak Rant ...

    As far as "celebrity" chefs go - much better to have Alton speaking positively on the topic (of trains) as opposed to Guy Fieri !!!

    Having not read this thread, can someone summarize what we should expect food wise on the Auto Train in a couple of weeks (Bedroom) ? THANKS

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    At least to hear my wife talk about it, women's (public) restrooms are even worse -- with nobody wanting to undertake cleaning duties, so some will hover over the seat.... that's all the detail I needed to hear.

    He gets tested daily, so from his perspective (being the center and sole occupant of the universe) - he's correct.

    Still no change or cancellation fees for new bookings?

    I reached out to them via Facebook, here's how that went: Hello there! Could you clarify the following from your website? I'm interested in making a reservation in a bedroom on the Auto Train for both August and October, but am unsure of what will be going on by then. Can a reservation made...

    Still no change or cancellation fees for new bookings?

    I'm looking at a couple travel dates for the Auto Train for August and October. If I book a bedroom now, and plans change, are they still giving a 100% refund to your credit card? THANKS

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    True, essential should not be equated to house arrest. YMMV, but common sense must play a role, unless you're in China (or similar) and the government chains the door shut to your building.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Thanks, yes -- LORTON :D I'm just picturing all the after effects --- getting vehicles back "home", repaired when necessary - and all that luggage and such which people were separated from. Something tells me we'll never hear the entire story. We obviously needed some forum members on there...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Regarding the derailment, was it determined how many people made it to Sanford and didn't have their cars (and what Amtrak did to assist those people) and/or the extent of damage to vehicles?

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Just came across the thread. WOW The trip that I cancelled very recently (and spoke about on another thread) was the 3/27 northbound. Had I kept that trip, it would have been another feather in my Amtrak cap (to add to the 12 hour delay we had on our first trip last year). WHEW !

    Price Drop - cancel/rebook... or price match ??

    Pulled the plug on our RT Autotrain trip next Friday. Cancelled that and one in June, August, and December. Nearly $5k going back to the credit card. Oh well...

    Price Drop - cancel/rebook... or price match ??

    Well, I'm still booked. That doesn't mean we'll actually make the trip. That's TBD ! I've seen priority offload pop on/off as options on that date too. So people are cancelling (obviously), and either others are booking or, more likely, people that already booked have taken advantage of that...

    Price Drop - cancel/rebook... or price match ??

    3/27 - price is back up again. Seems to be lowest in the morning. Never seen it fluctuate like the in the past.
