Many thanks. BCL - I am unable to lift even my small luggage up there. I have never been in a situation, either on Greyhound or Amtrak, that someone wasn't willing to help me with this, but I don't count chickens before they hatch - it's just easier to check it. Thanks, I know this will help those who are able to lift...

Sure. I know of a college athlete whose shoulders were so messed up he couldnt extend his arms fully up.

But there should be a floor level luggage area, and at least on Superliner equipment Ive seen luggage placed at the ends where theres dead space between the first seat and the bulkhead.

I meant that there are floor-level baggage racks.  I don't know about storing kids on the rack, but you can see that there's a lower-level to the storage area.  I'm not sure if this is Amfleet II, but I believe there's at least something similar.

Amfleets, single level cars, do not have those types of luggage storage.  There's a small space for some luggage at one end of each car.  Of course, some people store their bags in the handicap area which, of course, is a no-no if there should be someone in a wheelchair that needs that space.

Amfleet IIs have more space for luggage in the end of the cars than the AM-Is, right? Thought I had read that somewhere.

I was thinking of the luggage area section in the floor plan. I havent been on Amfleet II equipment in 5 years, and we placed our baggage overhead.
