Shipping stuff tonight on Amtrak for a cross-country move. Give me the nitty-gritty details!

I've read any posts/comments I can find that mention Amtrak shipping. I know I can't send breakables or anything with a plug and that the boxes can't individually weigh more than 50lbs. What am I missing? How did you label your boxes? Name/address or just station? Were they easy to find and pick up at the destination station? We've called our local station twice to verify that they can ship and they're open 24 hours, but I'm still freaking out. Anything you wish you'd known before you shipped with Amtrak?
