Amtrak Long-Distance Trains Manager Named

Amtrak has appointed Mark Murphy to be general manager of long distance services. Murphy will be based in Chicago and oversee safety, customer satisfaction, ridership, on-time performance, and financial results for Amtrak’s 15 long-distance trains.

He joined Amtrak in 1976 and was recently the deputy chief mechanical officer of terminal operations in Wilmington, Del.

Among the other positions that Murphy has held are terminal superintendent of the Washington Division, assistant vice president of service operations, superintendent of equipment standards and compliance, and master mechanic of the Central Division.

In his new post, Murphy will supervise the Transportation, Mechanical, and Engineering departments for Amtrak’s long-distance services. New route directors will be responsible for profit and loss, business planning, and decision-making for specific long-distance trains and will report to Murphy.
