“These modern maintenance facilities are an essential part of Amtrak’s plans to introduce new state-of-the-art passenger trainsets around the country.

“Thanks to funding provided by the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA), Amtrak can upgrade our existing rail yards with modern facilities that feature additional working space and enable more efficient maintenance practices.”

Each modernised site will be equipped to provide heavy maintenance, regular maintenance, refuelling, inspections, services and cleaning procedures.
