I haven't rode the Auto Train in a few years and don't remember the check in process. Do they check your ID at the check in? My brother is too ill too travel but still has a bunch of points and he suggested that I use his. To "share" them with me it will cost .01 a point. I'm trying to avoid paying $470.00 for the "privilege" of him giving me points. If I have a ticket with his name is that enough to get on the train?
