My father in law died without warning. I bought my husband the first available ticket as he's terrified of flying. Due to weather passengers were told they would get off in Reno and be placed on buses to Sacramento; (that's fine...things happen). So explain to me why he's going home to cremate his dad and pack up his house for sale that two plain clothes officers (one with a large black dog) stopped him on the platform as he moved with the other...Read more

Not that it matters or makes a difference to complain about Amtrak but it's horrible! I vouch never again to take this train anywhere and refuse to recommend it to anyone. I hope and pray that they close down the route and lose their funding because it's got to end somewhere! They're the worst company in existence and nothing is ever done to change it!

The train is almost always late! On the trip from Seattle to Libby, it was delayed by 4 hours. Tonight on the trip back, it was scheduled to leave at 10:59 and at 2 am has still not showed. Estimated to be another hour late. Maybe. Might be longer. Previous trips had similar delays.

Will provide pictures of the proof of disability that was deemed unacceptable if you want them.
The train arrived 15 minutes late to Penn Station, then stopped at DC for an engine switch. A mile from DC, the engine broke and they spent two hours fixing it. We ended up going back to DC to pick up a new conductor, while they promised us that we would make up the time. We are now being told that our 18:00 arrival time has been delayed until 02:00. Even though the train is meant to go to Miami, we are told that we are delayed because planes...Read more
ON DEC. 1,2016 MY WIFE AND RODE AMRAX TRAIN#79 THE CAROLINIA TO WISON N.C. AND RETURNED ON DEC.4, 2016 TRAIN #80.

SLEEPER CARS WAS NOT AVAILABLE BUT THEY WOULD PUT US NEXT TO HANDICAP RESTROOM. I ALSO TOLD THEM THAT I ONLY HAD ONE HAND THAT IT WOULD BE HARD TO PUSH HER AND CHANGE HER WHILE TRAINS WAS MOVING. THE TRAIN WAS...Read more
At least the problems that you experienced were probably a byproduct of apathy and below average intelligence. Mine were precipitated by a mean spirited condescending ticket agent at the Oakland,California Jack London Square station.He said that the extensive documentation that was honored 10 days earlier in Bakersfield and which were deemed acceptable by both customer service and the web site were no longer being accepted as proof of...Read more
Chicago Red Carpet wait for your sleeping car area is a Hard hustle at the front desk as you walk in to put your luggage in "Secured" area...during two hour wait someone went into that room and took our souvenirs out of our luggage...cop says the camera doesn't show the angle where our bags are...coincidently...don't let them convince you to leave your bags in Chicago Secured Area...put a bad ending to the whole trip to Sante Fe. I would like to...Read more
Today I rode the Amtrak from New York to Montpelier, Vermont. After arriving at my destination I was exiting the train and slipped and fell on the wet metal part of the floor that is exposed to the outside (I didn't know it was wet or exposed to the rain outside until after I fell) and cut my finger rather badly. I was outraged as conductor Clark displayed no signs of caring about what had just happened, he rudely told me to move along after I...Read more
When entering the train at the Homewood Illinois station they do not open the luggage department so you must carry your luggage on the train and set it in the vestibule, however if that location is fill you must carry your luggage upstairs to your seat… on the train you have 70 and 80 year old ladies trying to carry their luggage up stairs on the train while they are also carrying their walkers. The conductor/porters of the train will not...Read more
The attendant at the cafeteria section (of the train no 136 heading from New York to Springfield,MA on 11 th Nov, at 8:57 pm); staff named D. Hill was extremely rude. It seemed like he had some issues!! Whatever the issue be , he needs to learn how to calm and behave with manner. He was extremely rude. He threw my debit card after cashing and was speaking completely in agressive manner. I felt completely humiliated!! He should be taught a lesson...Read more
