Trip Report Auto Train to FL and Drive Back

Jump to last reply

Planned trip via Auto Train from Lorton VA to Sanford FL begins now. This is a scouting trip to look at some cities and visit some friends along the way back.

Itinerary:
Amtrak Auto Train. You take your own car! It is an overnight trip and rooms are available. I reserved a ticket in September (for a Feb. trip) thinking I could sleep sitting up. In October, I said "What are you thinking? You can't sleep sitting up!" Since I have a 2-hour drive upon arrival, I didn't think being sleep-deprived was so smart. I called to book a roomette and they are sold out. I was able to change to the next day. √Reserve in advance!

As departure date looms, the weather sounds iffy, so I call Amtrak to see if there are any cancellations. "Nope, totally sold out!" √I do learn that cancellations are posted at 5:00 or 5:30 a.m. If your need to change is strong, call very early in the a.m. to see if there is anything available.

After reading info on the Amtrak site, I found the following link about the train-if you have made this trip, perhaps you can say now if the info is accurate:

Don't know if I'll have time to post until getting back. Will try. Right now I'm trying to pack the right kind of clothes. It will be a challenge to go from cold to very warm to cool back to cold again. Layers are always correct, yes? How nice to be able to put extra things in the car. Off to pack, please stay tuned. √Remember to take my pillow.
