The future of rail.

In 2016, Amtrak announced its plans to introduce new, high speed train-sets by 2021. The planned update will take place in the Northeast Corridor, offering service between Union Station in Washington DC and Penn Station in New York City. The newly redesigned train-sets would reach speeds of nearly 200 mph, almost twice as fast as the current Acela train-line, and would do so using 20% less energy. In addition to new trains, Amtrak announced a widespread modernization program that would enhance train service/experience and update station environments, overall infrastructure and facilities.
