You can save half off your fare on a November getaway by train this fall season, but you have to act quickly.

During Amtrak’s two-day “Fall Getaway Flash Sale,” taking place Oct. 22 and 23, travelers can save 50 percent off train fare for travel between Nov. 11 and Nov. 29, with blackout dates on Nov. 26 and 27.
