ACELA at 150 mph NYC to Providence

Here is the Acela express from NYC to Providence. Fastest speeds are EAST of New Haven and between New London and Providence. Only places to reach over 100 MPH. Rest of route is either too curvy in RI or too conjested in CT, north of NY.

Taken in Worcester, MA heading west. This was about three miles west of the downtown Worcester train station. It had picked up quite a head of steam. Probably riding about 45 MPH at this time.
