I have never posted before, so hope this is in the right forum. My question is in relation to rumors and articles I have seen regarding TSA Security moving into Amtrak stations. I stopped flying five years ago because of the bizarre TSA methods at the airports, and consequently became a big train fan. We travel once a year between San Diego and Charleston, S. C. via LAX-Chicago-Washington, D. C.-Charleston and return the same route. Can someone tell me if I should be prepared for luggage search, back scatter etc. or enhanced pat downs? Can I opt out? Is this really happening now? Many thanks for any advice.
