Congratulations Amtrak on Your New High Speed Avelia Liberty Trains

Amtrak Avelia Liberty

Railway Gazette - The first of 28 Avelia Liberty trainsets being assembled by Alstom to operate Amtrak’s Acela Express services has been outshopped at the manufacturer’s Hornell plant, ahead of the start of test running. They will eventually run on their North East Cooridor. This will support a maximum design speed of 300 km/h, although they will initially be limited to 255 km/h when operating on the existing NEC infrastructure. #highspeedrail #amtrak
