Amtrak is investing in an extensive overhaul of its train interiors on more than a dozen popular services operating in the Northeast and Midwest aimed at introducing a more modern, more comfortable experience for customers. Beginning in September, Amtrak coach cars will begin to undergo a series of major improvements including brand new seat cushions throughout in both Coach Class (seen above) and Business Class cars.

Other improvements include new carpeting, new LED lighting, new flooring, upgraded wainscoting and bulkhead, new curtains in Business Class and redesigned galleys in the café cars. The total investment is valued at more than $16 million. To learn more, visit
