Transporting a car by train

how expensive is it to ship a car from miami to philly by train

morning or afternoon?

Other than the Auto Train, which covers only part of your trip, I’ve never heard of this being done before. I’d be surprised if an individual can arrange such a thing.

Although I’ve never done such a thing, I’ve heard from others that shipping a vehicle by train is a good way to go, and cheaper than a truck based car carrier. Individuals can and do use this method.

Today, freight-based railroads don’t mess with individuals shipping one car…Now if you have a full car-load, 10 or 12 cars, they might talk to you…Todays railroads make their money shipping bulk commodities…

Looks like it works from DC area to Miami, about $400 (and up) for 1 person + 1 car.
