The Puget Sound is your opportunity to visit the golden age of rail. Experience the magical combination of magnificent scenery, a leisurely travel pace, plus absolute privacy and exceptional service before, during and after your rail adventure.

Two smaller sitting room compartments offer sleeping space for two people each. All rooms feature private enclosed toilet/shower, TV/VCR/CD players, and an electronic porter calling system.

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR FIRST CONCERN

 

Luggage space aboard the car is limited. Towels, soap and hair dryer are provided on-board. With all the bedrooms occupied the car can comfortably accommodate up to 12 pieces of luggage that will fit under an airline seat, four cosmetic cases, and four hang-up bags. In addition one additional bag can be stored in the overhead storage areas of bedrooms No. 2 and No. 3 (for a total of two). Oversized luggage with external zippers and buckles should be checked to avoid their placement in lounge areas of the car. Luggage cannot be stored in the aisles of the car. So that you may fully enjoy the features of the PUGET SOUND we urge you to pack accordingly. Most long haul Amtrak & regular trains have baggage cars, but we cannot guarantee our ability to check or guarantee the security of your luggage on Amtrak®. Luggage may be stored in lounge areas, but this obviously compromises the ability to fully enjoy the car.

 

Once we have received your preliminary request, a Car Manager will contact you for additional information and prepare a quote for you, based on your specific request.


 

Security procedures now require that all passengers have a valid passport or U.S. government issued identification throughout the trip. The names of all passengers must be provided no later than 12 hours before departure. For travel into Canada, all U.S. citizens must provide proof of citizenship or valid passport.
