Rail officials demonstrate new 110 mph Amtrak service

Federal, state and local officials joined with Amtrak and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) in a demonstration of the new 110 mph service on the Wolverine line between Porter, Ind., and Kalamazoo, Mich.

Amtrak and MDOT recently received federal approval to increase maximum speeds of Amtrak trains in western Michigan and northern Indiana to 110 mph following the successful installation and testing of a positive train control safety system on Amtrak-owned track between Kalamazoo and Porter. Amtrak’s popular Wolverine and Blue Water train passengers will benefit from this improvement in service.
