Gary Dolzall tells the tale of the historic Northeast Corridor below:
Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, extending 457 miles from Boston, Massachusetts via New York City to Washington, D. C. is the busiest passenger route in the U. S., and certainly one of the most famous. Today, Amtrak carries more than 12 million passengers annually on the “NEC.”
South of New York, the route’s heritage is as part of the great Pennsylvania Railroad’s electrified lines; north of New York City, the route was by tradition built and operated by the famed New York, New Haven & Hartford. Upon its formation in May 1971, Amtrak assumed the intercity passenger operations of the Northeast Corridor.
Notable landmarks on this route include historic New York Penn Station, Amtrak’s busiest station nationwide; the Hudson River and East River tunnels that provide access to Penn Station; sprawling Sunnyside Yard, which is the servicing and staging point of Amtrak services to and from New York City; and the awe-inspiring Hell Gate Bridge crossing of the East River.
In addition to trackage owned and operated by Amtrak, this route includes adjoining CSX freight-only trackage including Oak Point Yard, Harlem River Yard, and Hunts Point Produce Terminal in the Bronx section of New York City, and CSX’s Fremont Secondary connecting the Hell Gate Line with the New York & Atlantic’s Fresh Pond Yard in Queens, New York – Gary Dolzall
