Rail stations, airport tunnel envisioned for Philly

PHILADELPHIA — Amtrak and city officials envision a new high-speed rail station on Market Street east of City Hall, linked by a 10-mile tunnel to Philadelphia International Airport, where a second new station would be built, according to a Philly.com story.

A new high-speed rail alignment beneath Center City would allow trains to avoid speed-killing curves and space limits near the 30th Street Station, helping meet a goal of 37-minute train trips between Philadelphia and New York by 2040. For the full story, click here.
