Amtrak to 'borrow' Grand Central

October 14, 2008 12:27:07 PM PDT
During the next two weekends, Grand Central Terminal will be the New York City stop for Amtrak trains to and from Albany while railroad switches are upgraded at Pennsylvania Station.The detour will involve 45 Amtrak trains per weekend. Penn Station is Amtrak's usual stop in New York City.

While the switch work is being done, Amtrak passengers on the Hudson line will see some changes. Some trips will be longer, some will depart from or arrive at different stations and some trains will split in two at Albany, with extra engines waiting.

Amtrak will provide shuttle buses from Penn Station to Grand Central.

Amtrak trains will be leaving from Metro-North's tracks 34 and 35 on the upper level of Grand Central Terminal.
