I am departing Newark NJ on Monday, July 3rd & will have two transfers to get to Portland Oregon. I would prefer to keep all my luggage as carry on, but I am unsure on how enforced is the "two carry on bag limit".
I would be carrying a large & small travel backpack, a fold up massage table, (it exceeds the size but not weight limit, only a few inches to long) as well as a smaller sized Didgeridoo (if they question this I could play it off as it being doubled as a cane/walking stick)
Reading through the forums, I only saw postings from 8-11 years ago with people saying "in practice if you can carry it & its within reason, you'll have no issues"
This is my first time taking Amtrak, so in peoples recent experiences, is the bag limit strictly enforced now?
As an experienced Amtrak rider, do you think I will be okay bringing all of this aboard?
I appreciate any feedback, Thank You !
