@jbs319 @JPoisl Since those Talgo trains are now going to Michigan, it looks like the semi-local trains to there from Chicago might have this service. That would make the likelihood of me visiting Michigan much greater. 


Driving all the way around the lake -- and through the Chgo-Ind mess -- is just too much to bear, and the ferry service is quite expensive. If I could take my bike with me, that would solve the transportation issue on the Michigan end that currently makes non-car travel to MI sort of unattractive.


As a Madison, WI resident, I will withhold my NSFW comments about losing that Amtrak service because of our Gov.

Yup. That's the problem. You ca  get on the WB train, but the bus back to Madison leaves 1/2 hour BEFORE the trainis supposed to arrive. But with my bike, I could ride home.

Yup. That's the problem:You can on the westbound train, but the bus back to Madison leaves 1/2 hour BEFORE the train is supposed to arrive. (Of course, we could have had rail service in Madison, and soon on  to the Twin Cities, if our Gov wasn't so against anything but highways.)

Will all train sto the destinations listed offer roll-on service at all baggage locations? I.E. If a train is going to/from Chicago from the west coast, can I get on with my bike at any stop that offers luggage service? if it's only available in those large cities, I will be disappointed. 


The closest Amtrak station is 30 miles away, but if I can put my bike on there and go out west for vacation, it will be huge. I'll bribe someone to drive me there! I've never taken my bike on a vacation unless I was driving because I didn't want to have to disassemble and pack it both directions (for Amtrak or air travel.)
