Is the long term parking in front of the Amtrak station or in front of the adjacent museum?
GBB has the easiest parking of any of the stations I use.
The parking at GBB sure looks good on Google Earth.
I'll be catching the westbound Southwest Chief there on a Monday, and it looks like the museum is closed on Mondays.
So there should be plenty of open parking spaces.
I've actually driven there for a rail fan trip. While there is plenty of parking it is not separately identified as to long term or short term. I suggest asking ticket agent and letting them know you will be leaving your car there while traveling. I've actually become friends with Maury G who runs the museum. When I made a day trip from Chicago to Galesburg this past October just to visit with him, he told me the museum is closed during the winter and was not open the day I visited but he took me inside anyway to show me the changes they had made since my first visit in 2014. As for the very large parking lot, I am not aware of what security they maintain but as I said above, I would let the ticket agent know I was leaving a car.
I've left my car there for almost a month several times.
