Amtrak Superliner II Luggage
Amtrak Superliner Passenger Train Accommodations, including photographs and
detailed descriptions of seats, rooms, train cars and services.
If you are bringing aboard no more than one large suitcase and one
smaller carry-on per person, then don't worry about luggage space!
There will usually be plenty of room! Just as you enter the Sleeping
Car, you will find a luggage rack with upper and lower shelf space.
Place your larger luggage pieces in this rack and take the smaller
carry-ons to your room. You will be able to get to your luggage in
the rack during your trip, so don't worry about trying to fit it into
your private bedroom.
If you are bringing more than 1 large and 1 small piece per person,
you might want to consider "checking" that additional luggage. Each
person is allowed to check up to 3 pieces of luggage as long as each
piece does not weigh more than 50 pounds (total = 150 pounds of
checked baggage per person).
A couple of notes: NO pets are allowed on Amtrak (except for animals
specifically designated to help a handicapped person), not in your
room and not in checked baggage. Amtrak will also not allow you to
check any baggage containing electronic equipment such as televisions
or stereos. You can hand-carry electronic equipment on-board, but you
cannot send it as checked baggage. You cannot even absolve Amtrak for
liability for damage to checked electronic equipment, they just won't
take it under any circumstances. Chances are that such equipment will
survive just fine carried on-board with you, but be aware that there is
a lot of shaking and bumping at times on the train. It is possible,
though rare, for an unsecured package on an upper rack to fall on the floor.
