    As of this afternoon (2/20) TS 8 is undergoing COT&S with the 6 passenger cars in Bear and the two Power Cars (2014/2019) in Wilmington. Also, TS 4 is one of the first trainsets that was semi-retired. The power cars (2001/2003) are in Wilmington for work.

    Tipping on Amtrak

    I can personally testify that the OBS employees do NOT have a strong union. The OBS employees as stated earlier voted down their contract offer. Because the union officials didn't listen to their members in my opinion. The vote was an overwhelming "NO". I think it was something llike 80% of the...

    Capitol Limited cancelled in both directions, 2/13/24

    Northeast Regional discussion

    The train hit a deer outside of Route 128 and it damaged the ACSES and Cab Signal equipment. They were only allowed 59 MPH to New Haven where a motor was added.

    New Phase VII P42: #174

    Espeically since it isn't equipped with ACSES. ;)

    I'm going to state that this is my opinion. The check in is a way for Amtrak to attempt tp eliminate the AC job. The Conductor who worked FC on this train did the right thing and justified his or her job. Keep in mind that this thread is "Acela Discussion", so feel free to post it! :)

    Lunch and dinner are the same menu, but in that case, yes you'd receive both. One meal from DC and the other after NYP.

    Amtrak Business Class

    Are you sure about that? The amount of times that I get complaints about it is astronomical.

    Amtrak Business Class

    You mean the assigned seats that people wanted and are now complaining about having?
  15. Acela150

    Amtrak Business Class

    Yes. All trains on the Corridor with the exception of 42/43 have assigned seats in BC.

    Amtrak Business Class

    Trains 65/67, 151, and 55 have the 2x1.

    Acela 21 (Avelia Liberty) development, testing and deployment

    Anyway back to the topic at hand folks... TS 8 went to Sunnyside last night.

    Thanks. I'm aware that President Biden took Amtrak as VP, but i don't think he has touched the train since taking the Oval Office. I can't think of any other Presidental moves besides President Obama's train to DC which was well publicized.

    Trainset 8 passed by New London @ 835pm on the way to NYP

    Confirming 845 as the running number. They left Boston around 2. They're doing testing in RI I believe and then following Train 179 from Kingston to NYP. That was the plan at least. They got to Readville and had some issues with one of the MCB's opening but that was rectified.
