(CNN) — Amtrak passengers, don't fret about those new excess-baggage fees.
Unless you're moving your entire apartment via train, they should not apply to you.
For those of you who need to haul more, Amtrak will start charging a $20 excess-baggage fee for each carry-on and personal item above those limits. And each passenger can bring no more than two excess carry-on bags weighing no more than 50 pounds each.
Passengers traveling with children under the age of 2 are allowed an additional item for the kids, such as a stroller or diaper bag.
It's not about making money, Amtrak officials say. It's about safety and space.
"The fees will help enforce Amtrak's established policies, preserve space on crowded trains and help to reduce safety concerns created by bags that are too heavy," Amtrak spokeswoman Chelsea Kopta wrote in an email.
