According to Amtrak 

Carry-on is two bags up to 50 lbs each.
Baggage is three bags up to 50 lbs each.

For carryon, they say:
Two-Piece Limit: Each passenger may bring aboard no more than two pieces of 
carry-on baggage. Not included in this limit are personal items such as 
briefcases, purses, laptops, and infant paraphernalia such as strollers, 
diaper bags and car seats.

and that your carry on must be visibly tagged with your name and address.
