Silver Service is a brand applied by Amtrak to rail services on the United States East Coast between New York City and Miami, Florida. This comprises two long-distance trains:[1]

These two services follow the same general path between New York City and Miami, but diverge between Rocky Mount, North Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. The Silver Meteor takes a coastal route through Fayetteville, North Carolina, Florence and Charleston, South Carolina, while the Silver Star takes an inland route through Raleigh and Cary, North Carolina, and Camden and Columbia, South Carolina. The Silver Star also serves Tampa, Florida.

Between 1996-2002 Amtrak operated a third New York–Miami train under this brand named the Silver Palm.[2]

In the 1970s Amtrak used the brand Florida Fleet to include the Silver Meteor, Silver Star, and the now-discontinued Champion.[3]
