Amtrak’s Next-Generation of High-Speed Trains

Amtrak’s Next-Generation of High-Speed Trains – blog.amtrak.com

At Amtrak we know the future of the Northeast Corridor (NEC) depends on the investments we make today, which is why we are excited to announce the upcoming arrival of the next-generation of high-speed rail. The new trainsets will replace the current Acela Express equipment and begin service in 2021. As part of this multi-faceted modernization program, Amtrak is also investing in the infrastructure needed to improve your customer experience onboard the train and in major NEC stations including Washington Union Station and Moynihan Station New York.

Overdue, but looks promising.  The best part of the video is the little part showing the new Penn Station in New York where there will actually be natural light!
