Change in Amtrak Service in Vermont

Amtrak service in Vermont has been disrupted because of Superstorm Sandy.

The Vermonter, Train 55, will originate in Springfield, Mass., rather than St. Albans, Vt. The Vermonter, Train 56, will operate normally from Washington, D.C., and end its route in St. Albans.

The changes are in effect as of Friday.


On Saturday and Sunday, the Vermonter trains 54 and 56 will operate normally between St. Albans and New York.

The Ethan Allen Express service — trains 290 and 291 — to and from Rutland is not running due to track damage south of Albany, N.Y. Amtrak officials do not know when the service will be restored.
