Amtrak resumes mid-day trains

North Carolina’s Amtrak Piedmont service will resume its regular mid-day run beginning Friday.
Mid-day service was temporarily suspended and other schedules were adjusted since Feb. 14 to allow Norfolk Southern Railway to make track improvements over an accelerated 10-week period.
The Piedmont (Trains 74 and 75) mid-day service, which was suspended Monday through Thursday, will resume its regular daily schedule. The morning and evening Piedmont (Trains 73 and 76) and Carolinian (Trains 79 and 80) will also return to their normal schedules.
The improvement project that reconditioned track, signals and bridges between Raleigh and Charlotte was completed on schedule. Benefits to passengers include a smoother ride and better on-time reliability starting this spring.
Passengers also can download the regular schedules for both the Piedmont and Carolinian trains at bytrain.org or by calling 1-800-BYTRAIN for information.
North Carolina’s Amtrak Piedmont and Carolinian trains are sponsored by NCDOT, and paid for with state funding and passenger fares. Reservations are required. Passengers are encouraged to book their tickets early for the best fares.
