Business class now available, along with sleeping cars & Coach class

CHICAGO— The Cardinal (Trains 50 & 51) has long been known as one of the most scenic routes on the national Amtrak network. Now, with an available upgrade to Business class, it is an even more comfortable way to travel from New York to Chicago, via Washington; White Sulphur Springs, Va.; Cincinnati and Indianapolis, effective Jan. 19 and 20.

For a surcharge of $51 per person or less, passengers can enjoy bonus Amtrak Guest Rewards® points and the following amenities:

• Spacious leather seats in a car reserved for Business class
• Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages
• Complimentary AmtrakConnect® Wi-Fi as cellular data service permits along the route
• Complimentary access to the Metropolitan Lounge at Chicago Union Station
• Access to Philadelphia’s Club Acela at 30th Street Station for $20 a person

Operating three days weekly, the Cardinal offers unforgettable views of the Southeast's stunning natural beauty. Passengers will see gently rolling horse country, the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, the Shenandoah Valley, and the wild white-water rivers of West Virginia as they can only be seen by train. Heading westward, the train rolls along the banks of the mighty Ohio River — from the quaint towns of Ashland and Maysville to the river city of Cincinnati. From there, the journey continues to the skylines of Indianapolis and Chicago.

In addition to Business class, Sleeping car upgrades are also available on the Cardinal, as well as Coach class seating that offers more room than almost any other transportation mode.   back...
