Luggage on Hiawatha Amtrak MKE to Chicago?

Jump to last reply

We are visiting family in Wisconsin and Chicago for 10 days and ending our trip with a wedding. As a family of 4, we'll have a fair amount of luggage including a larger suitcase to hold formal clothes for the wedding. We'll rent a car at MKE for the Wisconsin portion of the trip.

We wanted to avoid the cost of a one-way car rental and drop our car back at MKE, then take the Amtrak Hiawatha on a Wednesday mid-morning from Mitchell Airport to Union Station in Chicago.

Our question, the Amtrak website says no checked luggage on this route. The dimensions for an allowed bag are smaller than the bags we will have. We have never ridden Amtrak -- any advice on whether a larger wheeled suitcase would work on this route?

Thank you!
