American Railroads

News each weekday of American railroads. Our focus is on freight rail, but Amtrak and commuter rail are also essential ingredients. Nothing published on holidays.

Music City Star

Tennessee’s Music City Star Commuter Rail began running at 60 miles an hour yesterday. The commuter railroad is in its final phases of training and testing, and the increase is speed is much faster than freight trains that typically use the track. The new commuter railroad is using ex-Amtrak 16-cylinder F-40PHs, rated at 3,000hp.
