Can anybody help please? I am struggling with Amtraks stupid computerized personal assistant. Im trying to book a train from NY to DC and back a week later. However as we are travelling internationally via a number of countries the luggage we have is fine by the airlines we are flying with, however not for Amtrak. How seriously do they enforce the regulations? All suitcases meet the Amtrak sizing. Its really 2 bags each plus for me a normal airline size carry on wheelie bag as my hand baggage but its bigger than Amtraks 12 x 12 x 12.
If I cant do this as it doesnt appear to be possible via plane either (and I didnt want to have to waste time with all the security checking hanging around) I guess I will have to hire a car? Is this really the only solution?
Any advice really really gratefully received.
