Amtrak service returns to some areas

RALEIGH—Amtrak’s Piedmont and Carolinian passenger service between Raleigh and Charlotte will operate normally today, while Carolinian trains will operate normally between Charlotte and Philadelphia, Pa., with no alternate service north of Philadelphia, Pa. But, the remnants of Hurricane Sandy and the destruction left behind continue to impact passenger train service in the mid-Atlantic states and on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor.
The following Amtrak long distance trains that normally operate through NC will operate tomorrow:
• Train #19, the southbound Crescent, will only operate between Washington, D.C., and New Orleans, La., with limited alternate service between Philadelphia, Pa., and Washington, D.C.;
• Train #20, the northbound Crescent, will only operate between New Orleans, La., and Washington, D.C., with limited alternate service between Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa.;
• Trains 89 & 90, the Palmettos, are cancelled entirely with no connecting Amtrak Thruway bus service between Wilmington, Morehead City and Wilson;
• Trains 91 & 92, the Silver Stars, will only operate between Jacksonville, Fla., and Miami, Fla., with no alternate transportation;
• Train 97, the southbound Silver Meteor, will only operate between Washington, D.C., and Miami, Fla., with limited alternate service between Philadelphia, Pa. and Washington, D.C.; and
• Train 98, the northbound Silver Meteor, will only operate between Miami, Fla., and Washington, D.C., with limited alternate service between Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pa.
