Amtrak modifies schedules including Keystone Line

With extreme weather conditions impacting the Northeast, Amtrak will operate a modified schedule on the Northeast Corridor between Washington and Boston, the Keystone Service from New York to Harrisburg and the Empire Line between New York City and Albany on Wednesday, January 22, 2014.

Acela Express and Northeast Regional service will operate between Boston and Washington, though passengers should expect reduced frequencies.  Service will also operate on the Empire Line between New York City and Albany and on the Keystone line between New York and Harrisburg, with reduced frequencies.

Passengers holding reservations that require modification are being accommodated on other trains and proactively notified by Amtrak Customer Service.  A range of tools – including Amtrak.com, smartphone apps and 1-800-USA-RAIL – are available to assist in travel planning.

Other corridor services, including the Amtrak Downeaster (Brunswick, Maine – Boston) and the Springfield Shuttle (New Haven, Ct. – Springfield, Mass.), are expected to operate a normal schedule.
