Is it over by the 31st St/8th Avenue entrance?

Thank you!

Yes, it's still in the same place.

Take care and take trains!

WARNING: Problem with Luggage Deposit at Penn Station in January 2011

On Jan. 7 I tried to deposit my luggage at the AMTRAK luggage check in at PENN Station. I had a valid ticket from the NJ Transit train running from Newark AP to the station and wanted to store my one suitcase there for three hours before taking the bus to JFK.
The attendant at the AMTRAK luggage check refused to take my suitcase and claimed that I would need an AMTRACK long-distance ticket out of PENN Station to use their service!!!
I escalated the issue and involved two supervisors. After 20 minutes of discussion I was able to deposit it. The supervisors had to directly order the employee to accept the suitcase. Evidently, there are some new company policies in place.
You guys might want to use the commercial luggage facility that is posted in this thread.

Updating on this thread, which I found high up by Googling:
Amtrak baggage check (which is also a temporary storage) is still at the same place, works 5:15am-9:45pm, cost is $5.50 per item.
NJTransit ticket WORKS FINE; LIRR does not - I asked the agent about both.
I bought a NJTransit ticket to Secaucus ($4 one way, says valid until use; there's no date on the ticket. Figured I'll use it one day when going somewhere in NJ or to EWR) and it worked without a hitch. Beats going to 36th street and paying $7-10 per item.

If you're willing to walk out of the station, Macy's on 34th Street has a free luggage check in the lower level (the "cellar"). You don't have to buy anything to use it.
