Luggage on Amtrak from Philadelphia to NYC

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

We are travelling from Philly to NYC in October this year and are planning on travelling with Amtrak.

I have read all the threads on here about the luggage racks but cant find anything about recent travel. Has anyone taken large suitcases on this route recently?

We are travelling across the states for 3 weeks from the UK and will be doing a fair bit of shopping along the way so our bags will be pretty large (31" x 19" x 10.8") I've checked the amtrak site and the max dimensions of carry on are 28" x 22" x 14" - will we get away with the extra height? Or are the storage bays on the train only capable of taking a max height of 28? Does anyone know?

Help would be massively appreciated!
thanks,

rachel
