This train offers free cell-based Amtrak Wi-Fi, which may not be available in Canada. Occasionally, there are dead spots along the route, which could also be true for your phone. The service is not for streaming. Amtrak does not entertain like other transportation, but here are some ideas for entertainment on Amtrak.


We all need to eat when we travel. Find out what food options are available on thist train and what you can bring. I enjoy visiting the cafe car for coffee or a snack during my journey.

The Cafe Car

  • Here is an idea of what the cafe car offers
    • A variety of hot and cold meals
    • Snacks
    • Hot and cold beverages, including adult drinks.
  • The cafe car is open for most of the journey but is often closed for breaks, border crossing, and at the start and end of your trip.

Cards are accepted the whole route; Canadian funds may be restricted to the Canadian section, and credit and debit cards may be required.

Conductors and the cafe car attendant will let you know when it is open and its location.

Bringing Food On The Adirondack

Amtrak allows you to bring food and drink aboard the train; if you are crossing the border, check to ensure you can import them.

While you can bring alcohol on the train, you can’t consume it on the rails. If you get caught drinking your own or get out of hand, the train’s next stop will be yours. This could be not good if you get kicked off the train in another country.


This train does not allow cycles aboard.

Pets and service animals

Amtrak allows dogs and cats up to 20 pounds (combined weight of pet and carrier) for trips up to seven hours. You need paperwork found on Amtrak’s pet policy and current rules. Also, ensure your pet can cross the border!

If you have a service or comfort animal, read Amtrak’s service animal policy before booking to ensure your animal qualifies and you book it properly.

Luggage services

This train does not offer a checked bag service.

Each passenger may carry on:

  • One personal item, 25 lbs. (12 kg) and 14 x 11 x 7 inches, and 
  • Two carry-on pieces of luggage, 50 lbs. (23 kg) and 28 x 22 x 14 inches each
  • If you transfer to the Pacific Surfliner at some point along your journey, the baggage size for that train is up to 28 x 22 x 11 inches each. 

Charges apply for additional and oversized luggage; check out Amtrak’s carry-on bag policy for more information.

A quick look at border crossing requirements

To cross the border, you need a passport or other ID. Ensure you are prepared to cross the border before booking your trip.

You must be prepared and honest when dealing with border officers to ensure things go smoothly.

Be aware of what you can bring into the country you are going to, including money and agricultural goods.

Sites like Customs and Border Protections can help you travel into the USA and Canada Border Services Agency to cross into Canada.

Amtrak Adirondack Schedule border crossings and delays

You may experience delays at border crossings. Such delays are usually due to either or both US and Canadian customs and immigration procedures, and these delays are beyond Amtrak’s control.

Passengers will detrain with baggage at the border, should be prepared to show the ID selected when making reservations, and will reboard the same train.
