Description

26 August 2016 - Alstom and Amtrak announced that they have signed a contract for Alstom to design, build and maintain 28 new high-speed trains, which will run on the Northeast Corridor (NEC) between Boston and Washington D.C. The contract is worth €1.8 billion euros ($2 billion).

The Northeast Corridor (NEC) line covers roughly 730 km (457 miles)[1]. In only ten years, the number of passengers has increased from 2.5 million passengers in 2004 to 3.5 million in 2014. Amtrak has therefore decided to purchase new trainsets to replace the existing Acela trains[2], thus increasing passenger capacity, minimizing journey times, and improving operating costs and energy efficiency.
