Acela Still Suspended

by NBC10/AP | Apr 19, 2005
Acela Still Suspended Amtrak's fastest train service has been sidetracked once again.

A spokeswoman said that Amtrak has decided to suspend its high-speed rail service as it works to repair damaged brakes and determine the cause.

Amtrak officials had said that one Acela train would run daily between Washington and New York through Friday. But officials later decided against that. No Acela trains will run through Friday, possibly longer.

The railroad did run one Acela train between Washington and Boston Monday, the first time since Amtrak suspended the 20-train fleet last Friday.

The high-speed service was suspended after Amtrak discovered millimeter-sized cracks in 300 of the Acela fleet's more than 1,400 disc brake rotors.
