Amtrak and its supplier, Alstom, have reached another milestone in the development of the new Acela trainsets, unveiling the interiors of the fleet that will better serve Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor travelers. Through these photos, you will see how Amtrak is upgrading the experience for millions of passengers and setting the stage for the next generation of train travel in America and on the Northeast Corridor. Elevating the travel experience, the new Acela offers enhancements in comfort, technology, innovation, and safety on Amtrak’s most environmentally sustainable fleet of trains to date.
“Between the sleek design of their interiors, state-of-the-art technology, and sustainable amenities, and innovative safety features, our new Acela trains will help revolutionize American train travel,” said Amtrak President & CEO Stephen Gardner. “Thanks to Senator Schumer’s strong leadership and commitment to improving high-speed rail and Amtrak service in the New York and throughout the nation, and the hard work of Alstom, Amtrak employees and our other partners, travelers will experience improved, modern, and smoother service on the Northeast Corridor and provide this country with the type of modern train travel we deserve when these trains are ready for service next year.”
First Class Tray Table
The color ‘red’ distinguishes First Class from Business Class - as evident in the headrests here, and also on the door to the trainset. These First Class seats provide more space, leg room and personal tray tables, that can remain open or closed independent from one’s neighbor.
Business Class Seats & Trays
Additional Business Class amenities include these sleek tray tables, complimentary Wi-Fi, an advanced seat reservation system, an onboard info system providing location, train speed and conductor announcements, and head rests with wings so you don’t fall asleep on your neighbor.
