Trains that will not operate between Sept. 12 and Sept. 16 include the Auto Train, Silver Meteor and Crescent.

Trains cancelled starting on Sept. 12 include the Carolinian and Piedmonts.

Between Sept. 12 and 16 the Silver Star will operate only between Jacksonville, Florida, and Miami, while the Palmetto will operate only between New York and Washington.

Between Sept. 13 and 16 the Cardinal will operate only between Chicago and Indianapolis; Northeast Regional train 94 will operate between Richmond (Staples Mill station) and Boston; while other Northeast Regional trains will not operate south of Washington.

On Sept. 17 and 18 some Northeast Regional trains will operate only between Washington and points north.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said it is waiving service charges for passengers seeking to modify their reservations but should contact Amtrak’s reservation center at 800-USA-RAIL.
