Anyone taken a coupled tandem on Amtrak as "roll-on?"
We are currently planning a summer trip to either the Katy trail or Tremepeleau County, WI. Still haven't decided. In either event we're considering using Amtrak for a good deal of the travel from Texas.
I figure I can do a quick frame/cable/timing-chain breakdown on our tandem and get it into two Amtrak bike cases. I haven't actually tried it yet but will the next time I can get two boxes at Amtrak.
My question is this - has anyone traveled with their tandem in two pieces, with a wheel on each one, and been allowed to "roll-on" without boxing it?
Maybe I'm just hitting the wrong people, but I haven't been able to get a definitive answer from anyone at Amtrak.
