Cardinal / Hoosier State

New York - Washington, DC - Cincinnati - Indianapolis - Chicago
Cardinal / Hoosier State Route Map
close
The Cardinal

The Cardinal operates between New York and Chicago three days a week, offering unforgettable views of the Southeast's stunning natural beauty. You'll see gently rolling horse country, the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, the Shenandoah Valley, and the wild white-water rivers of West Virginia as they can only be seen by train. Heading westward, the train rolls along the banks of the mighty Ohio River — from the quaint towns of Ashland and Maysville, to the skyline of Cincinnati. From there, your journey continues to Indianapolis, and then northward to Chicago.

Choose a wide, comfortable Reserved Coach seat, or make reservations for sleeper/bedroom accommodations.

Checked baggage service is available at most staffed stations on this route. Look for the checked baggage icon when making your reservation to ensure this service is available at your desired departure and arrival points.

The Hoosier State

The Hoosier State runs daily between Chicago and Indianapolis with Reserved Coach service.
