First Look: Inside Amtrak’s New Acela Express

Published

on

Amtrak’s Acela, which is a “high speed train” service between Boston and Washington, DC along the Northeast Corridor, was launched back in 2000 and continues to use the same trainsets nineteen years later. As part of a $2.4 billion investment in the corridor, that’s going to happen, with Amtrak going back to Alstom for the next generation train, which Alstom calls the Avelia Liberty.

The new trains aren’t expected to be in service until 2021 but, with the help of a mock-up, Amtrak has decided to give us peek at what the interior is going to be like, which is probably the most important aspect to the Acela’s core demographic of business travelers.
