When Amtrak’s newest Acela trainsets arrive in 2021, not only will travelers get a faster trip between Boston, New York, and Washington D.C., but a more posh interior as well.
The agency showed off the new cars’ upgraded interiors this week at its headquarters in Delaware, where the tour included mock-ups of both business and first-class, as well as the cars’ bathrooms, galley, and driver’s cab.
“The new trains will provide world-class accommodations and amenities, along with a smoother and even more comfortable ride,” Amtrak said in a press release. “The trainsets are being manufactured at Alstom’s Hornell, NY, facility and each trainset will offer more seating capacity with 378 seats to offer the spacious, high-end comfort our customers expect.”
