Hello all! I am so happy to have discovered this site and forum. I have been a train fanatic since birth practically. I grew up with Monons, Southerns, B&O/C&O, Pennsy/NYC, all coming through my hometown. My dad and I used to chase trains on weekends and I did the same with my own child. Now my question.
My wife and I are taking the Cali Zephyr from Galesburg Ill to Emeryville Cal. next week. We are being forced to drive 5 hrs to Galesburg (no train in our area), will our vehicle be safe while parked at the station for the week and a half we will be away? Is there a secure parking lot near the station? Thanks for the help.

Hello, welcome to AU!

I personally don't know exactly, but this thread may give you an idea of what to expect. However it is several years old, not sure if things have changed much since then.

Welcome, and you'll have no trouble Parking in Galesburg. Just talk with the Agent when you arrive and they'll advise on where the Best spot to leave your Car Long Term is.

Lots of our members have done this with no problems.Plenty of good spots close by to eat too!

Not sure of the Museum Status with COVID, but if it's Open ( it's in the Station Building next to the Amtrak Waiting Room) its worth getting there early to see it!
