More choices for better transportation

Auto Train suspended

This is not exactly red hot “news,” but the Orlando Sentinel has the complete report.

SANFORD – Cracks in the underframes of auto carriers have grounded Amtrak’s Auto Train until steel plates can be welded to the cracked area of the frames.

The Auto Train travels both northbound and southbound daily between Sanford and the Washington, D.C. suburb of Lorton, Va. Service will not resume any sooner than Saturday, Amtrak spokeswoman Tracy Connell said. A decision about the weekend runs will be made today, she said.
