Amtrak Advances Plans for New Maintenance Facilities

Amtrak has announced multiple upcoming procurement packages for new support facilities in Seattle, Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C. These new and renovated facilities will improve trainset maintenance and repairs, inspection and cleaning for Amtrak’s existing and future fleet, including new AcelaAmtrak Airo and Long Distance trains.

In addition to these four maintenance facilities, additional sites are also planned. That includes one in Philadelphia currently in procurement with an active Request for Proposals. Each site will house various facilities, such as:

  • Heavy Maintenance: Major extended repairs and overhauls
  • Maintenance & Inspections: Routine maintenance, inspections and refueling
  • Service & Cleaning: Routine maintenance and inspections, cleaning and utility access
