Travel to Washington

Hello,

We're planning to go to Washington DC from Mount Laurel. Wanted to take the train but they have "no checked baggage" for every train on that route. We will ofcourse have baggage. The only other option seems to be bus. But am concerned about the reviews of Greyhound that I've been reading. Any suggestions?

How much luggage will you have? You can take your suitcases on the train, it just means that they won't stow it for you.

About 7 bags between the 4 of us as we're flying back from DC.

You should have no problem with the luggage on the train. And don't worry about AMTRAK's luggage size and number regulations. They are not enforced between Boston and Washington. This is a common route for students and others, all bringing any manner and size of objects on the train. Large musical instruments, sporting equipment, and large laundry bags are common. I've even seen architectural models brought on board. Your items may be subject to TSA and/or dog searching.
