Amtrak Announces Service Suspensions

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Amtrak will suspend some services between New York and south of Washington, D.C., due to the latest winter storm forecast for the Northeast, Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Other Amtrak services in these regions, including the Northeast Corridor, are scheduled to operate. The suspension of some service in Carolinas, Georgia and Florida is designed to reduce the exposure of Amtrak passengers, crews and rail equipment to extreme weather conditions, in coordination with CSX Transportation. Alternate transportation is not available.

The following services will be suspended for origination on Wednesday, Feb. 12:
• Northbound and Southbound Crescent, Trains 19 and 20
