Silver Service / Palmetto

New York - Washington, DC - Charleston - Savannah - Jacksonville - Orlando - Tampa / Miami
Silver Service / Palmetto Route Map
Let the Silver Service Take You to Florida's Golden Sands

The Silver Meteor and the Silver Star connect New York City and Miami with stops at dozens of exciting destinations in between. Whether you're heading for the beach at Fort Lauderdale, taking the family to Busch Gardens or looking for alligators in Okeechobee, the Silver Service makes getting there a breeze. At the end of the line, be sure not to miss the beautiful beaches, colorful neighborhoods and Latin-influenced food and music of Miami.

Wide, comfortable reserved Coach seating and Viewliner Sleeping accommodations are available on both trains. Enjoy the sleeping car experience on the Silver Meteor (Trains 97 & 98), where traditional Dining Car meals are included in the price of your ticket. Or pay less for these popular sleeping accommodations on the Silver Star (Trains 91 & 92), where food service is limited to meals purchased in the Café/Lounge car, which offers a selection of hot and cold sandwiches, snacks, beverages and other items.

The True South Lies Just Outside Your Palmetto Train Window

As you take the Palmetto from New York City to Savannah, GA, you'll be treated to a unique picture of the American South. Stop along the way to explore the charms of Richmond, VA, and tour the antebellum homes of Charleston, SC. In Savannah, you can wander the 22 squares that dot the city's historic downtown or stroll the beach of nearby Tybee Island. No matter what you decide to do and see, you'll want to return soon to experience more of the South's history and personality.
