Amtrak Auto Train from Virginia to Florida

Postby 67moon » Sat Feb 03, 2007 12:05 pm

Our family is considering taking the Amtrak Auto Train to the United. The cost for the car and two adults is $622 roundtrip!

Amtrak has informed us that they transport many classic and antique automobiles and while you can't drive the car onto the train, you can watch them load it.

The train leaves VA (outside Washington DC) at 4:30 pm and arrives in Sanford (45 minutes from Daytona) at 8:30 am. Dinner and breakfast are included in the fare.

If enough people are interested, we can contact Amtrak about getting everyone seated in the same train car.

The car train is a really great idea! I would most likley drive down but the train is a super option.

Thanks for pursuing Auto Train idea. Joanne and I should consider it. She is fed up with riding in the Tiger....or at least with me.

Our situation is that we wanted to go down a week or so earlier, do some traveling and end up at the United. We have to work out our schedule first.
