Additional cars have been added to Northeast Regional trains to add capacity to accommodate Acela Express passengers traveling between New York and Boston. Passengers should expect delays of up to 90 minutes due to the continued diesel operation.

Acela Express and Northeast Regional trains will operate normally between New York and Washington, D.C.
