Instructions Upon Arrival

Passengers should plan to arrive at least 30-45 minutes prior to departure.  With sold out trains, if you miss your departure, there is generally very little chance of getting you on another trip in the same year. Please also remember to bring your e-Tickets, whether in print or on your mobile device.  When you arrive at the Cass depot, please report to the ticket window to have your e-Tickets scanned for pre-boarding.
