Janet - Em and I travelled via Amtrak to NYC to visit Deb and meet Peter a year or two back and we carried our buki (wooden ones in Bujin bag and iaito in a standard sword bag) and received not a glance. I vote for the "sports equipment" answer ... or just get and wear a LaCrosse sports team jersey ...
Thanks for the updated info! As it happens I'll be Amtraking to Sacto at least a couple of times this year to train, but given that it's a big shlep (bus and train and w/o checked luggage options) I'm just going to do it w/o weapons and trust to my empty hand skills en route
