Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Budd Metroliner car was an electric multiple unit train designed for first-class, high-speed service on the Pennsylvania Railroad's route between New York City and Washington, DC. Built between 1968 and 1969, they operated in eponymous service on the Penn Central beginning in early 1969 and continuing under Amtrak after the latter's 1971 creation. The High Speed Ground Transportation Act of 1965 started a U.S. Government effort to develop a high speed train for Northeast Corridor service. The U.S. Department of Transportation worked with the Pennsylvania Railroad, Budd Company, General Electric and Westinghouse to develop an electric multiple unit high speed passenger train with initial service target for 1967.show more
