OVER THE COURSE of the next ten months, Amtrak is investing $4 million refreshing its premier Acela Express trains. The upgrades will include new carpeting, seat cushions and seat covers on all 100 Acela train cars, as well as giving each car a deep clean.
The first of the refurbished trains are already in service, with others rolling out on a monthly basis until March 2019. The refresh is an interim step as the rail service’s entire fleet of existing Acela Express trains is expected to be replaced by 2022. Amtrak will test out a next-generation passenger train car beginning in 2019.
