I'm arriving into Union station early in the morning, departing at 10pm

I know I can check my luggage for the journey, but can't find an earliest time, the latest is 45 mins.

This was the page that I found that information on

Amtrak.com checked baggage

Amtrak.com Washington, DC (WAS) Union Station

I'm also aware that there is a luggage locker service, located in the station complex but the price per item per hour seemed steep.

Hoping this is an easy answer


According to Amtrak at 800-USA-RAIL, you may check your baggage in as soon as the baggage department opens at the station. It's 7:15AM at my station. Perfect for my 10PM departure.
