Amtrak Announces Next-Generation of High-Speed Rail


At Amtrak we know the future of the Northeast Corridor 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. 

For this project, we are pleased to be partnering with Alstom, a leading global provider of innovative systems and equipment in the railway sector. Alstom will be building these new trainsets in New York State, with 95% of the trainset’s components being made in America, and parts coming from 350 suppliers in 30 U.S. states.

AMTRAK: I would love to model high speed rail using portion of the actual lines or areas. An idea of where it goes and time involved make it worth while. Ridership is the soul of it; pack them in the doors. We dont have train packers here. Im going to free lance a model for a new train with great designs.

Even if this goes threw I still feel it won’t be able to revolutionise American travel. Air travel will still probably be the more favourable option .

As an American, I agree that our passenger system (Amtrak) sucks ass. We need something like this all over the states, not just the east coast. I took a train from Newport News, Virginia to Washington DC. To drive that distance, it is about a 4 hour drive. With Amtrak, it was a 9 hour ride. Wtf is that Amtrak!

All the important tech for this type of train was designed and developed for the British Rail Advanced Passenger Train which was built in the 1970's-80's then abandoned because the government didn't want to spend any money on the railways.
The APT was tested at 162mph on a 110mph line proving higher speeds could be attained without rebuilding tracks.

Nice April fools joke!

And then build a diesel version for the 80% living outside the NE. What about the SE? Oh yeah, we get "new" roads. Nope just a layer of tar patching up the rough spots while our bridges fail and the rest of the country forgets about us. It's no wonder people in the SE teach anti science its because it doesn't help us much.
