Amtrak has released a new video providing a preview of the interior on its New Acela trainsets, with an emphasis on the touchless nature of many features — an important COVID-19 consideration — as well as environmental features like the use of recycled leather for seating.

Caroline Decker, Amtrak’s vice president, Northeast Corridor service line, hosts the 2 minute, 24-second video for the New Acela, which is scheduled to enter service next year. Testing of the first New Acela trainsets continues on the Northeast Corridor and at the Association of American Railroads’ Transportation Technology Center near Boulder, Colo.
