New England Amtrak Routes

Eight Amtrak routes travel to and from New England (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut). Most are used for commuting or regional travel. The exception is the long-distance Lake Shore Limited trains, which travel between Boston and Chicago. The Acela, Northeast Regional and Vermonter also travel longer distances — you can reach New England from as far south as Virginia on these routes.
