LSL Boston Through Cars to Resume in February

The Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited will not resume operating between Chicago and Boston until Feb. 1, 2016.

Currently, Nos. 448 and 449 are operating as a connecting train between Boston and Albany-Rensselaer, New York.

Amtrak said additional time is needed to complete a track reconfiguration and new platform construction at the station in Rensselaer. The project was originally scheduled to be completed in the fall.

Nos. 448 and 449 have been operating only between Boston and Albany-Rensselaer since early 2015.

The Viewliner sleepers previously assigned to the Boston section have instead been operating between Chicago and New York on Nos. 48 and 49, the parent train of the Lake Shore Limited.

In the interim, the Boston section has operated with coaches and a café car.
