ATLANTA — Amtrak is urging passengers to book their Thanksgiving holiday train tickets early to avoid missing out on the best availability and pricing.

The busiest travel days, the ones most likely to sell out, are the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday following the holiday.

Amtrak saw a record 737,537 passengers travel by train during the Thanksgiving holiday a year ago. That broke the previous record set during the holiday in 2011.

In a statement, Amtrak said it “will operate every available passenger rail car in its fleet and is scheduling extra trains and adding capacity on routes in the Northeast, Midwest and the West Coast.”
