The following Savannah section has been extracted from Amtrak’s “Silver Service” Route Guide.  (Savannah is the “Palmetto’s” last southbound stop).

“Savannah, Georgia’s oldest city, is often referred to in Stevenson’s Treasure Island as a city of grace, beauty, style and charm. The colonial capital was founded by General James Oglethorpe, when he and 125 colonists arrived from England in 1733. River Street and the waterfront provide reminders of the city’s link to the sea. It is here that the second largest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the U.S. takes place. Savannah is a connecting point for the resort area of Hilton Head, South Carolina.”

The approximate rail travel distance between New York City and Savannah via the Palmetto is 830 miles and the rail travel time is just shy of 15 hours.
