Traveling soon from El Paso to Milwaukee - Texas Eagle 422 (hopefully) connecting to Hiawatha 337. Will have a roomette & travel with one large suitcase and one airline carry-on sized. Thinking it would be really nice to check the larger bag so I do not have to lug on and off / between trains in Chicago and fight for baggage rack space. The proposed connection above is relatively short at 1 hour 23 minutes. I realize if the train is late I will likely end up on a later Hiawatha, in which case I'm sure my bag would make the connection. However, if the Eagle is relatively on time, or if I "just" make the connection, what are the chances my bag will make it? The complicating factor is that my home is approx. 3.5 hours away from the MKE station in an area with no Amtrak service. I'm assuming should the checked bag miss the train but I make it, Amtrak would not be willing to deliver it to me at this distance and I would end up waiting for it? Just looking for some friendly advice which forum members have provided many times before! Also, regarding the carry on in the roomette, it's been a while since I've traveled & never had a roomette to myself. Will there be room to store the carry on in the upper bunk and still fold it up to the ceiling a comfortable distance? Thanks to all in advance.
