As of last July...
My checked bike was transfered from one train to another in Chicago by unseen Amtrak peoples.
Also, we asked around and found luggage lockers to store one rather large carry-on for several hours while we took a wander. Seems to me they were available in different sizes, the biggest being plenty to fit a 30 inch suitcase, but I didn`t see any that looked big enough for a standard bike box.
FWIW, it was the first time trhough Chicago for both my wife and for me, and found plenty to keep us amused for about five hours within walking distance of the station. Would love to go back and spend some "real" time there now. And welcome to the forums.
