Amtrak Travel folder style
« on: January 14, 2010, 12:22:08 pm »
Newbie looking for advice on Amtrak travel w/ a Bike Friday folded in case. Going coach and carry-on, as no baggage serv.@destination.  Anyone done this?  I have the Amtrak policy on size, mainly interested in ways to keep it from walking off.

Try to find a seat near where the box will be stashed.  (That will depend on what type of train equipment is used on your train.)

Get up and check on it periodically.  If it walks off between stops alert a member of the train crew.  It can't have gone far.

Keep in in sight at every stop.

I really don't think you have much (if anything) to worry about.  You could have a piece of carry on in the rack above your head, fall asleep or go the bathroom and have it walk off.  In fact, that's probably a more likely scenario (See recent charges against Cybil Shapherd's son for allegedly stealing from carry on bags while in flgiht) than someone trying to walk away with your bike box since in the former scenario they could rifle your bag for valuables and then dump it back on the overhead rack of another car.
