  1. About time! Next up—checked baggage to more and more stops, ultimately to serve all stations. It will reduce on board luggage crowding…

  2. This is certainly a welcome service addition! On frequent trips from Tampa to Pgh. we usually change trains in Was. But this last trip we changed in Phila. so relatives could pick up at the Pgh. station at 8:00 PM instead of 11:30 PM. BUTTTT we had to claim our luggage in Phila. and carry it to the “Pennsylvanian”.
