Travel from DC to NY with luggage

Me and my husband will make a trip by Amtrak from DC to NY, but Amtrak says only accept baggage with a maximum height of 27 inches, but our bag is 29.5 inches! Will there be a problem with the size of the bag?

thank you

If you can handle the bag yourself, there will be no problem. The trains between DC and NYC do not have luggage checking available. You need to deal with your luggage yourself or get a Red Cap to help you. There are luggage racks above the seats and a place for very large bags at the end of the car.
