A Historic Journey

The Capitol Limited train runs daily between Washington, DC and Chicago. You'll follow the historic B&O line on your journey through the Potomac Valley, past historic Harpers Ferry and the Allegheny Mountains into Pittsburgh. Cross into Ohio heading north to Cleveland, and then across Ohio and Indiana into the center of Chicago.

A Comfortable Journey

Instead of driving a car, taking a plane or bus between DC, Cleveland and Chicago, Capitol Limited is bound to give you a memorable train ride. Spacious Superliner accommodations make your trip more enjoyable, with showers and thoughtful amenities, friendly service and delicious dining.

Choose a wide, comfortable Reserved Coach seat, or make reservations for Sleeper Service accommodations. In the daylight hours, find a spot in the Sightseer Lounge, and enjoy watching the spectacular scenery roll past.
