No Changes in Latest Amtrak TT

amtrak-tt

Amtrak issued a new system timetable on Sept. 9 and for the first time in the company’s history it is available only online.

The timetable shows no changes in scheduled times for the three trains that serve Ohio, the Chicago-New York Lake Shore Limited, the Chicago-Washington Capitol Limited and the tri-weekly Chicago-New York Cardinal.

Although the timetable shows through cars between Chicago and Boston for the Lake Shore Limited, a check of Amtrak’s website found that passengers still must change trains at Albany-Rensselaer, New York.

Through cars between Chicago and Boston are shown in the system as becoming effective Oct. 24.

There are no changes in schedules for other Amtrak corridor or long-distance trains serving the Midwest.

The typography of the timetable is slightly different from the last system timetable, which was issued on Jan. 11, 2016.

Also missing from the latest timetable is the letter from Amtrak’s president. It has been replaced with a letter from D.J. Stadler, Amtrak’s executive vice president and chief operations officer.

Previous Amtrak President Joseph Boardman retired on Sept. 1 and was replaced by Charles “Wick” Moorman, whose appointment had apparently not been finalized when the timetable production work was completed.

The cover features an image of the westbound California Zephyr passing colorful fall foliage near Grandby, Colorado. The image was made by Amtrak trainmaster Steve Ostrowski.
