The following services will be suspended for Wednesday, Feb. 12:

• Auto Train 52 and 53
• Carolinian 79 and 80

Passengers with travel plans for Tuesday and Wednesday are encouraged to plan ahead and make any necessary reservation changes in advance. A wide range of tools are available to assist with travel planning including (including the interactive train tracker map), the Amtrak smartphone app (available for iPhone, Android & Windows phones) and 1-800-USA-RAIL.
