The Freedom Bell is located outside of Washington, D.C., Union Station and is a replica of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. The plaque in front of it reads, “The Freedom Bell Dedicated to The Spirit of the Bicentennial on Behalf of The Children of Our Nation Given By The American Legion And American Legion Auxiliary 1981.”
Our stations come in all shapes and sizes. Check out the pedestrian tunnel that now serves as an additional waiting area for passengers at our Aberdeen stop in Maryland.
The Lower Trenton Toll Supported Bridge, also known as the Trenton Makes Bridge, crosses over the Delaware River and is a major landmark in Trenton, New Jersey. At night the sign even lights up in red.
In the afternoon, train travelers gather at the very famous, very informative Penn Station Departure Board, also known as the Solari Board, waiting for their departing gate announcement.
Every seat comes with a complimentary copy of Arrive magazine, our official magazine for Northeast business & leisure travelers. Arrive is also available via the Arrive magazine iPhone app, so you can enjoy it anywhere.
In 2005 the BWI Airport officially changed its name to Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, recognizing the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Did you know that we connect travelers to two major airports along the Northeast Corridor? (Know the second airport? Leave your answer in the comment section!)
There is no shortage of water views from our Northeast Regional train. Here, the sun and the water meet to make the perfect train window photo-op.
