If you are looking at the Auto Train - I have heard horror stories about it.

I did it once as a kid. As I recall, it took 22 hours. We thought it was cool, but we had sleeper cars, and were big train nerds. I wouldn't do it without sleeper cars. If sleeper cars are still cheaper than airfare, only you can answer the question of how much your vacation time is worth. Is it worth the savings to spend two days of your time on the train?
