Follow this link for details about riding Amtrak to/along the Katy Trail - where the train stops (Washington, Hermann, Jeff City, Sedalia), and how to get to the trail from there. This page does not tell you how to get from Centralia IL to the cross-Missouri route, but Amtrak's website should be able to tell you that (you'll see a link to their site on that page).

Thae Amtrak listed above is excellent. If you reserve ahesd of time they will install hangers in one of the cars so that you can hang your bike and keep your eye on itn Needless to say cannot keep them in the aisle and there is no longer a "baggage car". Thanks to Trail Net in StL.

If you're looking to ride Amtrak from Centralia, that means you'll have to board the Illini or City of New Orleans to Chicago (bikes not allowed on either) and then ride the Ann Rutledge to get to Washington, Herman, Jefferson City, or Sedalia stations along the KATY trail. Alternately, you can ride train south to Carbondale, get a thruway (bus) connection to St. Louis to ride either the Ann Rutledge or the Kansas City Mule to the KATY.

The other problem, unless they've changed their policy, is that they strictly limit bikes on trains (I'm not sure the number--2 or 4,I think, so that won't work well for a bike club.
