Personal Electronic Devices and Route Podcasts

Bring Your Entertainment Onboard

You may bring and use onboard personal electronic devices such as PCs, DVD players, tablets and CD players. In most Amtrak trains, First Class and Business Class seats and sleepers have standard 110-volt electrical power outlets available to supply power for electronic devices. Very few outlets are available, however, at Coach Class seats.

Free Amtrak Route Podcasts on Select Train Routes

Free Amtrak Route Podcasts Amtrak, the National Park Service's Trails and Rails Program, and the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences at Texas A&M University have created audio podcasts to enhance your travel experience on the Sunset Limited (New Orleans - Los Angeles) and Texas Eagle trains (Chicago - San Antonio - Los Angeles). The podcasts, as your trip guide, will provide you with information on the travel experience, points of interest etc. to make your rail journey more enjoyable.
