Amtrak is replacing its fleet of DC-to-Boston passenger railcars
Amtrak began the process of replacing 470 passenger railcars for use along the popular Northeast corridor route between DC and Boston, many of which are 40 to 50 years old. New Acela trains and passenger cars are already in production and should be operational in 2022. (Jeff Clabaugh / WTOP)
