Default Title: $49.95 USD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING

America’s fastest passenger trains were developed through an innovative high-speed rail program that spanned more than forty years. For two generations of rail travelers, “Metroliner” evoked an image of speed and convenience. Conceived when the future of U.S. rail travel was in doubt, Metroliner captured the public’s attention and arguably led Congress to create Amtrak. The Metroliners tells the story of the development, marketing, and operational challenges, all of which led to the train becoming the most-used travel mode in the busy corridor between New York and Washington. Authored by industry insiders, The Metroliners follows the story from the turbulent 1960s to the development and introduction of Acela in the 21st century. Chapter 1: Laying the Foundation; Chapter 2: Testing and Development; Chapter 3: The Penn Central Years; Chapter 4: The Early Amtrak Years; Chapter 5: From NECIP to New York Air; Chapter 6: Metroliner Meets the Challenge; Chapter 7: A Northeastern Institution; Chapter 8: Metroliner Away from Home; Chapter 9: Seeking the Next Generation; Chapter 10: Enter Acela, Exit Metroliner
