The platforms used by all NEC trains are full high level. So unless the proposal is using Acela on the Boston and Albany route, there would not be any issue with Boston area platforms.Jeff Smith wrote: ↑Wed Feb 08, 2023 8:14 am I think a 3/4 combo is definitely doable. I don't think putting traps in though is advisable. They need to put in high-level platforms. This should be doable for Virginia service. I believe most are single platform stations, and you could add a single center-island platform at DC (is Boston all high, or just the Acela tracks?). A cab car would be nice if it were a cabbage.Boston's Amtrak stations are not all high-level boarding, per some locals I know there. Back Bay could use them, but it's completely low-level (South Station is all high). I know Virginia is a mixed bag but mostly low. So adding the traps is probably a good idea.
