Positioning Move – Chicago to Washington, D.C. – March 2017

Attention Cincinnati Railway fans,

We have a low cost positioning move available for a limited number of people.  The Moonlight Dome will be moving from Chicago, through Cincinnati on its way to Washington D.C. on March 30th 2017.  Moonlight Dome departs Chicago at 5:45 P.M. of March 30th behind Amtrak’s Cardinal.  It arrives in Cincinnati at 3:17 A.M. of the 31st, arriving Washington D.C. at 6:19 P.M.  You have the option to board in either Chicago, or Cincinnati, or any other station on the Cardinal route.  Bring a cooler with your food and drinks as meal service will not be provided by Chef Bill.  An on-board refrigerator is available for your use.

Three bedrooms are available with each having two single beds in them.  If boarding in Chicago, you will be assigned a bed in one of the three bedrooms.  Keep in mind you may be sharing the bedroom with another person.  If boarding in Cincinnati or beyond, you have the option to buy a bed if available, or simply buy a seat at a lower cost.  Upon arrival into Washington’s Union Station you must leave the car and provide for your own way home.

Cost for one of the six available beds—— $300.00 per person     Maximum six

Cost for a seat in the dome—————— $200.00 per person     Maximum twelve

First come first serve.  Email Vicky at if you want to book passage.   Tickets must be paid for before departure.  Boarding at the station in Chicago, no yard boarding.

There is nothing like seeing the New River Gorge from a seat in a dome car. Don’t miss this rare opportunity at these obscenely low prices.



America starts right in your backyard.
