The Cincinnati Daylight Express! This ONE-WAY Special Train will operate on Tuesday October 20th, 2020, from Chicago Union Station, departing at 11am CDT, and arriving in Cincinnati at approximately 8:30pm EDT.

This will be the longest-distance Special Train behind Amtrak for 2020, and tickets are limited- prices start at just $199 for lounge class, with breakfast and lunch included! Premium Class seats are, of course, also available- we have multiple domes to choose from, as well as our exclusive Chairman's Class tailcar- the famous Cedar Rapids!

This route may be familiar to some of you, as it is also the route of Amtrak's Cardinal, which leaves Chicago at 5:30pm three days a week. Our trip's departure time allows you to see the beautiful rolling countryside of Indiana and Ohio in daylight- a rare treat experienced only occasionally in the eastbound direction. Adding to this unique opportunity are the beautiful private railcars and personalized service indicative of all Railexco events, and you've got an unforgettable rail journey!

The consist will be comprised of the various private railcars, Amtrak cars, and locomotives used for our famous Autumn Colors Express, a rail excursion being held later that week between Huntington and Hinton, WV.
