Pros
Comfortable seat. On time.
Cons
I could not find the track for this train in Union Station. The signage there is not helpful. I knew I needed track 22, but did not see any information as to where track 22 was.
Tips
If you've never taken this train before, get to Union Station a few minutes early to find the track.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there WiFi onboard Amtrak Saluki?

Yes Amtrak Saluki offers WiFi connection onboard their train trips. Though most trips with Amtrak Saluki will have WiFi as advertised, some trips might not come equipped with Wifi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Amtrak Saluki WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends, you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power outlets on a Amtrak Saluki train? Are there USB plugs?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Amtrak Saluki train trips. You can generally find one or two plugs per row of seats, so be a good traveler and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power outlet USB converter that typically come with most phones and tablets. Since Amtrak Saluki might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power outlets. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

Does Amtrak Saluki offer will call tickets, that you pick up at the station?

No, currently Amtrak Saluki does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station or stop.

Do you need an ID to get on a Amtrak Saluki train?

Yes, Amtrak Saluki requires you to present an ID to an agent to be allowed to board the train. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements. Alternative IDs, like a college ID, won’t work.

Do you have to print your Amtrak Saluki ticket?

Amtrak Saluki does not require a printed ticket to board the train. An E Ticket is sent to you by email that you can load on most electronic devices. You will want to have your ticket ready to be displayed as you board for the agent to scan. We recommend you download the Wanderu app, as it gives you super easy access to E Tickets for your upcoming trips for most carriers.
