the online train status issues due to weather updates in the northeast is almost useless: impossible to verify status of trains with any certainty; phone line info and online info differ; shouldn't be too hard to have someone keep this stuff current.
Modified Snow Schedule for NEC
Due to the pending winter storm expected to impact the Northeast Corridor, we will operate a modified snow schedule on Friday, January 3, 2014.
Acela Express and Northeast Regional service will operate between Boston and Washington. Passengers should expect reduced frequencies, particularly in New England.
Corridor services, including the Keystone Service (New York – Harrisburg, Pa.), Empire Service (New York – Albany, N.Y.), Amtrak Downeaster (Brunswick, Maine – Boston) and most of the Springfield Shuttle (New Haven, Ct. – Springfield, Mass.), are not affected and are expected to operate a normal schedule.
Passengers holding reservations that require modification are being accommodated on other trains and proactively notified by Amtrak Customer Service. You may adjust your travel plans or check your train status on Amtrak.com or by using our mobile app.
