The Cardinal is scheduled to arrive at NY Penn Station at 9:58 PM at night. Does anyone know if the Red Caps are usually still around that late at night to help arriving passengers get their luggage to street level? What about if the train is late? Thanks.

I am not certain for sure, but I believe there will be Red Caps available for the arrival of the Cardinal, even if it is late. After all, the Red Caps are Amtrak employees.
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

There are redcaps, but not many, at that time of night. Be sure to let a conductor, or your sleeper attendant, know before arrival, that you need assistance....

There are a few Red Caps, but like stated above make sure to let someone know, Conductor or your Attendant, so they can make sure sure you are taken care of.
