Atlantic City Express (Amtrak)


Atlantic City Express (Amtrak)

The Atlantic City Express was an Amtrak train that ran from both New York City and Washington, D.C. to Atlantic City, New Jersey, in the Northeastern United States.

The train operated on the Northeast Corridor from New York City and Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where it went east to Atlantic City. The train made several local stops at Amtrak stations along the route. The train started service in the late 1980s, after Amtrak spent extra Northeast Corridor improvement funds to rehabilitate the Atlantic City Line from Philadelphia to Atlantic City. The train was designed to provide service to gamblers and vacationers.

Amtrak also ran several test trains from Atlantic City to Richmond, Virginia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

All Amtrak service to Atlantic City was discontinued on April 1, 1995. New Jersey Transit now operates local trains between Philadelphia to Atlantic City.

A new express train from Penn Station New York to Atlantic City is in development by the casinos and NJ, and is expected to begin in Summer 2008 using New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City Line. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_City_Line#Proposed_express_service_to_New_York_City]
