Amtrak operates a coast-to-coast passenger rail network in the USA. They inherited a large collection of passenger equipment from American freight railways, and over time Amtrak has evolved into several areas:

  • The Northeast Corridor services from Boston through Philadephia, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore to Washington
  • Transcontinental railway services (the “National Network”)
  • State-supported short haul service outside the Corridor

Transcontinental railway services include famous named trains like the Capitol Limited, the California Zephyr, the Texas Eagle and the Empire Builder.
