Plus it is EXTREMILY expensive to ride it. I just did a quote check on amtrak.com to find that traveling from New York to Washington D.C. would cost $100 more on the Acela than on the economy Regional Service. ($63 for a Regional, $168 on Acela.) Also by taking the Acela I would only get there about 40 minutes quicker than the Regional, and to me, $100 is way too much to save 40 minutes of travel time.

Never really been a huge fan of electric trains though. I prefer the Diesels.
