Amtrak Vermonter Returns to the Rails

(Trains Newswire - Published on October 6, 2011)

ST. ALBANS, Vt. — Amtrak’s Vermonter resumed normal service this weekend following service interruptions due to track work and washouts, the Windham (Vt.) Commons has reported.

Federal high speed rail funds paid for repairs to Vermont Rail System’s infrastructure for a faster, smoother ride. Amtrak elected to bus Vermonter passengers north of Springfield, Mass., to reduce interruptions for track crews. Tropical Storm Irene wreaked havoc on the line in August, delaying reopening.
