NEW YORK (WABC) -- Amtrak is offering a two for one deal for its passengers on sleeper trains.

Travelers with tickets for its "roomette" accommodations get priority boarding and lounge access at major stations.

The deal is available for a limited time, and there are some restrictions -- including passengers must book at least three days in advance.
