PRIVATE COACH & TOUR TRAIN MOVEMENT TARIFF
CONDITIONS FOR MOVEMENT PRIVATELY OWNED RAILROAD CARS ON AMTRAK
D. MOVEMENT REQUESTS
1. All requests for movement on Amtrak trains must be received in writing on a fully completed Amtrak Private
Car Movement Request Form - NRPC 2208 (see attachment 1). Requests in compliance with these
conditions may be made up to one year in advance but no later than 14 calendar days prior to the date of
the first car movement. Amtrak will only honor requests for car movement from the Car Owner(s) or their
authorized representative. The request must be transmitted to Amtrak s System Operations Department.
2. Amtrak may, at its discretion, approve movement of private cars on trains that would not normally be
allowed. Rates and other charges associated with such movements will be established by Amtrak and may
differ from those shown under Rates . Certain other restrictions may apply.
3. Within 72 hours of receipt of a Car Movement Request, Amtrak s System Operations Department will notify
the requestor that the movement request has been received. However, if the Owner/Operator has an
outstanding balance that exceeds 30 days past due or, if the annual car administrative fee is due or, if their
insurance coverage or mechanical inspections are not up to date, the Owner/Operator will be informed that
the move will not be considered until all outstanding issues have been resolved.
4. Amtrak will notify the Owner/Operator of the approval or denial of any movement that is requested 30
calendar days or more before departure by the 14th calendar day prior to the commencement of the move.
In cases of long lead-time requests (i.e. 60 calendar days or more in advance), Amtrak will provide a
response indicating the feasibility of the movement within 30 calendar days of receipt of the request.
Unplanned track work, service disruptions or other operational problems affecting Amtrak and/or the host
railroads may result in last minute cancellations or changes to previously approved movements.
