Taking Amtrak over the holiday

By Michael D. Bolden
Mark Berman

Amtrak is rolling out extra trains to meet the expected demand of travelers during the Thanksgiving holiday. The rail agency said it has scheduled extra trains in the Northeast, Midwest and on the West Coast. Amtrak has also implemented a special timetable for the Northeast Corridor for Nov. 23-29.

Officials offered travelers the following advice for Thanksgiving travel:
-- The Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after are the busiest days. Buy tickets early.
-- Arrive at the station early, at least 45 minute before your departure time if you need to pick up tickets,
-- Carry photo ID.
-- There is a limit of two carry-on bags per person.
-- If you see something suspicious, call Amtrak police at 1-800-331-0008.
