Acela Express and Northeast Regional regular weekend service will be provided on the Northeast Corridor between Boston and Washington, D.C., via New York City, on Saturday, November 3 and Sunday, November 4. To avoid the possibility of long lines at ticket offices and sold-out trains, passengers should make reservations and payment in advance through Amtrak.com, through the Amtrak app on a smartphone, or by calling 800-USA-RAIL.

Amtrak services to and from New York City are subject to delay while repairs continue.

  • Vermonter (Trains 55 & 56) will operate normally between St. Albans, Vt., and New York

  • Lake Shore Limited (Trains 448 & 449) will operate normally Chicago-Boston, with no service to points south of Albany-Rensselaer, rather than (Trains 48 & 49) originating and terminating in New York.
