Depends on the type of bike service offered. Several Amtrak routes offer Carry-on bike service that allows you to walk your bike onto the train and walk it off at any station. No checking required. The Vermonter is a good example. I have taken it twice. The Capitol Limited is another example. (It also offers checked baggage service at certain stops.)

Here is the link to Amtrak's rules, which show which trains offer which types of bike service(s):
