    I recently made an attempt to book a trip on Amtrak from Tampa, FL to Dyer, IN to visit relatives. Leaving Saturday on the new schedule for the Silver Star to connect with the Cardinal in Virginia on Monday Thruway bus Richmond to Charlottesville) and arriving in Dyer on Monday won't work.
    the only solutions are to either leave Florida day earlier and spend a day in Virginia, or connect on the Capitol Limited at DC a day later to Chicago and then backtrack to Dyer for a late Tuesday evening arrival. In that case, even four changes on the Greyhound bus are quicker going from Tampa to Merrillville, IN.
