I min "karriere" på spor i Värmland hadde vi på SJ mange rare seanser med misbruk av Värmlandstrafik sine månedskort og andre terminkort....

    Amtrak returns passenger trains to Burlington

    USA: Regular inter-city trains have begun serving the largest city in Vermont following a gap of 69 years, with the extension of Amtrak’s Ethan Allen Express to Burlington.

    The daily train to and from New York previously terminated at Rutland, Vermont, but has now been extended north by 115 km to Burlington, also calling at Vergennes and Middlebury, where new facilities have been developed as part of a state-funded project launched...

    For Amtrak, 50 More Siemens ALC-42s

    Amtrak has exercised an option with Siemens Mobility for an additional 50 ALC-42 (“Amtrak Long-Distance Charger, 4,200 HP”) diesel-electric locomotives, bringing the total contract value to $2 billion, including supplemental multiyear maintenance support. The amount also includes about $850 million in funding set aside when the initial order of 75 units was announced in 2018.

    The EPA Tier 4-compliant, AC-traction ALC-42 primarily...

  • [US] Forbes and Ike Brannon Have It All Wrong
    Ignoring the “Hinterlands,” the heartland of America, as Jack Kemp Institute Senior Fellow Ike Brannon champions in his Forbes article, “Amtrak’s Expansion To The Hinterlands Will Be Costly To The Government & The Economy,” will in reality be expensive to the U.S. government, the economy and the American way of life.

    Brannon follows in the footsteps of numerous other coastal elites denigrating any rail investment outside the Northeast Corridor (NEC); recycling the same misrepresentations...

  • [US] Next Step in Gulf Coast Case: Mediation

    The Surface Transportation Board (STB) on June 10 ordered Board-sponsored mediation in the Gulf Coast case between Amtrak on one side and CSX, Norfolk Southern (NS), and the Alabama State Port Authority and its Terminal Railway Alabama State Docks division (collectively, the Port) on the other. CSX and Amtrak respond.

    The freight railroads and the Port last month renewed their request for mediation, saying they “continue to believe that an amicable resolution is possible—one...

  • [US] Amtrak to STB: We Want New Host Railroad Rules

    The authority vested in the Surface Transportation Board (STB) to decide issues concerning passenger trains has been expanding lately. On May 27, Amtrak asked the Board to intervene in a dispute with Canadian National (CN) over a number of issues, including on-time performance (OTP), penalties for low performance, and incentives to improve performance.

  • [US] Gulf Coast Battle: An Interim Report
    The witness phase of the slugout between Amtrak on one side and CSX, Norfolk Southern (NS) and the Port of Mobile on the other, ended May 12 as its 11th day concluded. It ended not with T.S. Eliot’s oft-quoted “whimper” but truly with a bang.

    It was held before the Surface Transportation Board, and STB Chair Martin J. Oberman characterized it as “an unprecedented hearing” and “maybe the longest ever.” The “bang” was a frank, forthright and apparently frustrated summation...

  • [US] Acela Trainsets: Amtrak Reveals Interiors, New Revenue Service Date

    Photo: In the new Acela trainsets, 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 and leg room as well as personal tray tables, according to Amtrak. (Photo Courtesy of Amtrak)

    Amtrak on March 31 provided a look inside its new Acela trainsets from Alstom that it said will now enter Northeast Corridor service in fall 2023—another delay.
