Has anybody got any info/experiences on the auto train? I think its only an East Coast railway. Runs back and forth from outside Orlando to outside Washington DC. For $125 (bike) and $100 (me for a coach seat) the train takes me from FL to almost DC. I'm looking at the second week of October (cool weather and color season) for going north. Its a short ride to Front Royal, VA to get on VA Skyline Drive and ride south which turns into The Blue Ridge Parkway. Then over to ride The Tail of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway then into NC and then Northern GA and then south to find some sleepy roads back to Ft. Lauderdale. Capt D.
