Any recent experience with this (if you need to take the train)?
This drops prices on a lot of cities:
Phoenix              reg 322 thru zfv 263
Los Angeles       reg 358 thru zfv 281
Dallas                reg 340 thru zfv 181
Miami                   reg 310 thru zfv 245
and more

Are you skipped both ZFV segments without a problem? IE: ZFV-EWR-SAN-EWR-ZFV
Did you checkin for them online?

Our ticket was from ZFV to NEWARK and from NEWARK to TLV.  We called united before and they told us they are sending 1 day prior the info to Amtrak so we went to penn station 1 night before and they told us they have no info about us, from there we called united and the rep on the phone apologized but from the words we understood they have no clue who actually takes the train so the next day we without a problem checked it at Newark.

Because of the fear, that perhaps UA will cancel the ticket, especially if originates in ZFV, why not hop onto train in Metropark, NJ (the stop b4 EWR), the conductor will scan the ticket and you should be all set. And the other way around as well.
Anyone know if this is feasible?
