The Tier II crash standards, adopted in 1999, have also resulted in the passenger cars being designed without steps and trapdoors, which means that the trainsets can only serve stations with high-level platforms — this currently restricts them to lines with high-level platforms such as the Northeast Corridor. Bombardier have since used the Acela Express’s carriage design and a non-electric variant of the power car for their experimental JetTrain.

The Acela name was announced in 1999, and was originally intended as a rebranding of most of Amtrak’s Northeast services, forming three levels – Acela Express, Acela Regional and Acela Commuter. Due to confusion between the lower-speed Acela Regional trains and the Acela Express – as the name is (intentionally) evocative of acceleration – the Acela branding was removed from what is now the Regional service in 2003.

Automatic sliding doors provide access between cars throughout the length of the train and reduce noise. Baggage may be stowed in overhead compartments that resemble those in airliners, as well as underneath the rider’s seat.

Acela Express (often called simply Acela) is the name used by Amtrak for the high-speed tilting train service operating between Washington, D.C. and Boston via Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York along the Northeast Corridor (NEC) in the Northeast United States. The tilting design allows the train to travel at higher speeds on the sharply curved NEC without disturbing passengers, by lowering lateral G-forces.
