Amtrak Invests 7.3 Billion for new fleet of trains-Goodbye Gotham, Hello Metropolis!

Amtrak is investing $7.3 billion in a new fleet of state-of-the-art trains, including some of its first hybrid-electric powered trains, to modernize its aging fleet and attract more travelers, the company said Wednesday.

The company is buying up to 83 new trains that will operate mostly along the Northeast Corridor. They will also run the long-distance Palmetto line from New York to Miami as well as some state-supported routes, replacing Amtrak’s Amfleet, Metro liner which if you’ve ever seen them, look like they belong on a batman movie set because of how ugly and outdated the fleet is and looks.

Some of the new trains servicing the New York region will be powered by Amtrak’s first hybrid-electric batteries, to cut back on-air pollution, looks like Elon got to them too.

Amtrak CEO Bill Flynn said in a statement

“These new trains will reshape the future of rail travel by replacing our aging 40-to-50-year-old fleet with state-of-the-art, American-made equipment,”.

“This investment is essential to preserving and growing our Northeast Regional and state-supported services and will allow our customers to travel comfortably and safely, while deeply reducing criteria pollutants.”

So, is this the new beginning for long distance train travel? Only time, money and the consumer will tell. But as long as they listen to the consumer and don’t try to cut costs and shave some of that 7.3 billion into their pockets instead of their fleet things may actually work out for Amtrak and who knows people might be more inclined to ride on in a train then on a airplane.
