In June, I will be travelling from Vancouver (Canada) to Los Angeles, mainly by Amtrak trains and buses. However, I am not planning to do the journey in one trip, but intend making stopovers in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and San Luis Obispo, over 8 days. Prior to this I will have been on a 3 week tour of Canada and Alaska, and will have a rather large suitcase. I don't fancy having to lug that suitcase from the train station to wherever my hotel is in each city. Is it possible to forward the suitcase direct from Vancouver to LA (e.g. on the Coast Starlight) and have it waiting for me at the LA station when I arrive 8 days later? Would there be a charge in sending unaccompanied checked luggage?
