I have placed this next fare near the bottom of the list because it is so
abnormal compared to other Amtrak fares. I wouldn't want you to conclude
all Amtrak fares are as high as Metroliners between New York and Washington.

Note: Amtrak changed the name from "Economy Bedroom" to "Standard Bedroom". Thus, they mean the same thing and refer to the same room.

Amtrak is happy to quote you a fare for your train trip by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL. However, the fare they give you is only valid if you make your reservation immediately on that same phone call. If you call back later to make your reservation, the fare could change. You can also obtain fare quotes online at: http://reservations.amtrak.com.
