Carolinian / Piedmont

New York - Raleigh - Charlotte
Carolinian / Piedmont Route Map
close
Discover the Traditional Southern Charms of a Thoroughly Modern State

Amtrak offers two routes for travelers who want to explore the many wonders of North Carolina. The Piedmont travels between the vibrant commercial center of Charlotte and the state capital of Raleigh. The Carolinian covers the same route, with service extending up the East Coast to New York City.

Wi-Fi Wi-Fi® is available on both Piedmont and Carolinian trains.

As one of the original 13 colonies, North Carolina boasts a rich history that is evidenced in sites such as the revolutionary Alamance Battleground in Burlington, and the first U.S. gold mine, outside of Charlotte. But North Carolina has so much more to offer than history. Take the kids to the North Carolina Transportation Museum, featuring a beautifully preserved 37-bay locomotive roundhouse and 100-foot turntable. Or enjoy a cultured evening in Raleigh at the symphony or ballet.

North Carolina Volunteer Train Hosts

North Carolina Volunteer Train Hosts serve daily on the Carolinian and Piedmont, assisting passengers and providing information about rail passenger service and points of interest within North Carolina.
