Boston LSL Section to Remain Shuttle Train

The Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited will continue to be a shuttle train for a while longer.

The National Association of Railroad passengers reported that No. 448/449 will not resume operating between Chicago and Boston on April 1 as earlier planned.

Amtrak Lake Shore LimitedNARP said that platform construction and the installation of new switches at the station in Albany-Rensselaer, New York, will take some tracks out of service during the coming months.

Since early 2015, Nos. 448/449 have been operating only between Boston and Albany-Rensselaer with through passengers having to make an across-the-platform connection.

The Boston section has provided coach and café service.  The full-serving dining car and three Viewliner sleepers have been operating on the New York section of the Lake Shore Limited.
