Acela runs off the NEC. Erie Lackawanna network is now the Morris & Essex network of New Jersey Transit.

Another record year for Amtrak
Tuesday, October 28, 2014



AMTRAK announced its annual results on October 27 for its 2014 financial year, which ended on September 30, revealing revenues from ticket sales have once again reached a record high, climbing 4% compared with 2013 to reach to $US 2.19bn

Overall ridership increased by 0.2%, driven mainly by a 3.3% increase in passenger numbers on the Washington DC – New York – Boston Northeast Corridor, which reached 11.6 million. Acela Express ridership exceeded 14,000 on 28 days during the 2014 financial year, compared with just five days in 2013. Eight other services also saw record passenger numbers

Virginia DOT, FRA host meetings on proposed D.C.-Richmond high-speed project
The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration are hosting public information meetings this month to introduce a preliminary engineering and environmental review project related to a proposed high-speed rail service between Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Va.

The review project includes a Tier II Environmental Impact Statement for the 123-mile rail corridor that runs through all cities and counties along the Interstate 95 corridor between Arlington County and Chesterfield County, Va.
Maybe all hopes for High speed out side the northeast and California aren't dead yet.

I appreciate all the pictures, but shouldn't they be in a separate thread? When I want to check this thread for news I have to load dozens of huge photos and scroll through them looking for news...

He does have a valid point though; loading through dozens of pictures can be tedious.

Although, I would have to say that if people want to look purely for news, just go to the direct sources (railwayage, railwaygazette, irj, etc.)

Privately-funded US commuter service planned
03 Dec 2014


Boston Surface Commuter Railroad Co demonstration train

USA: Plans for the USA’s ‘first privately-funded passenger rail service in almost 100 years’ have been announced by Boston Surface Commuter Railroad Co.

This would operate over the Providence & Worcester Railroad between the eponymous cities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, offering a reliable alternative to unpredictable road journey times. A launch in 18 months to two years is envisaged.

BSRC founder and General Manager Vincent Bono told Railway Gazette International that the plan arose from a consultancy project which examined why passengers use rail. This identified that a ‘measurable percentage’ of people will take the train for journeys of around 70 km taking 50 min or over, but also found that a solid commuter base of regular passengers is needed to ensure financial viability. The Worcester – Providence route was subsequently identified as a suitable candidate

$55 million redesign, two-story building planned for Elizabeth NJ Transit station


Preliminary designs were unveiled Monday for a $55 million renovation of the Elizabeth NJ Transit station. From left are Mayor Chris Bollwage, City Council President Patricia Perkins Auguste, Assemblywoman Annette Quijano, U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and U.S. Sen Cory Booker. (Katie Lannan | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)

ELIZABETH — A total of $55 million in state and federal money will fund the construction of a new two-story building and train platforms at the city's midtown NJ Transit Station, a project officials hailed today as an economic driver.

"This project is not just about the rail, it's not just about the station," U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said during an event outside the station. "This will be an economic accelerator for the city of Elizabeth. It'll increase housing values, it'll spur business growth, it'll create jobs and expand opportunity. This is a tremendous day for the city of Elizabeth and for the region."

Booker, Sen. Robert Menendez and Rep. Albio Sires joined state, city and NJ Transit officials and Union County freeholders to unveil the designs for the new station.

"This area is going through a renaissance, and this is just going to help it," Sires said. "It's going to create jobs, people are going to move into the area because of easy access to moving back and forth, and you need a train station that's adequate."

Preliminary designs of the West Grand Street station, expected to be completed in 2018, include a two-story station building with a street-level ticket office, waiting room and vendor space.

New, longer platforms will be constructed with covered, climate-controlled waiting areas. Elevators to the platform will be renovated, with additional elevators and stairways also planned.

New Jersey DEP reviewing permit for work on Scranton-NYC passenger rail line

By Joe Sylvester
As legislators and other officials in Pennsylvania push for a Scranton to New York City passenger rail line, New Jersey environmental officials are reviewing an application for a permit to resume construction on a section of the line in that state.

The New Jersey Herald recently reported that Sussex County Freeholder Gail Phoebus said the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection were close to releasing the remaining permits needed to lay more track and build the new NJ Transit rail station on Roseville Road in Andover Township, along the so-called Lackawanna Cutoff.

But Larry Haina, a spokesman for the New Jersey DEP, said the review of NJ Transit’s application was in the early stages.

Metro-North's Danbury Line improvements getting back on track


New Milford's old train station on Railroad Street, now houses the New Milford Chamber of Commerce. Friday, January 9, 2015. Photo: Carol Kalif

Susan Tuz
Published 6:18 pm, Saturday, January 10, 2015

After years on the back burner, plans to improve commuter rail service to Danbury, and perhaps extend it as far north as New Milford, might be picking up steam.

While some improvements, including signalization, have recently been made to Metro-North's Danbury Line, bigger enhancements, like electrifying the branch line, remain in limbo -- frustrating not just commuters but also local leaders who see improvements as the key to economic growth.

Many officials believe electrifying the Danbury Line is long overdue, and when it is finally done, it will decrease road congestion and make it easier to bring workers to employment centers.
