Carry-On Baggage

Each passenger may only bring a total of 2 carry-on items onboard the train; each item should not exceed 50 lbs. (23 kg) and 28 x 22 x 14 inches.

For passenger’s safety and security, Amtrak reserves the right to deny transport or charge fees for items exceeding policy limitations.
