Storm Reduces Some Amtrak Service in NEC

Although Amtrak has modified its Northeast Corridor schedules on Wednesday in the wake of a major winter storm, most long distance services westward will not be affected.

One train that is affected is the Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited, which will not operate. Passengers will instead be transported by bus.

The Capitol Limited and New York section of the Lake Shore Limited will operate as scheduled.

Full service is also planned for the New York-Harrisburg, Pa., Keystone Corridor and the Empire Corridor between New York and Niagara Falls, N.Y.

The westbound Cardinal scheduled to depart New York on Wednesday has been canceled due to the derailment in West Virginia of a CSX crude oil train on the route used by Amtrak No. 51.

Late on Tuesday all coach seats on the Capitol Limited, Lake Shore Limited and Pennsylvanian were sold out for the trains departing on Wednesday from Washington or New York.
