Initially Amtrak will operate one weekday Acela Nonstop service in each direction. The southbound train will depart New York Penn Station at 06.35, arriving at Washington Union Station at 09.10. The northbound train will depart from Union at 16.30, arriving at Penn at 19.05.
Amtrak says onboard amenities will be announced closer to the launch date.
The launch of Acela Nonstop is a prelude to the introduction of Amtrak’s next-generation Acela trains on the northeast corridor in 2021. Assembly of the first train is underway at Alstom’s facility in Hornell, New York, and initial testing will begin later this year.
