Wappingers Falls, NY: The 2020/2021 edition of New York By Rail , an official Amtrak publication for 17 years running, was published in late September by Content Studio @ Martinelli Custom Publishing. The 100-page magazine includes a letter from Amtrak’s President & CEO; top picks of places to visit in 14 destinations; major annual events, Amtrak special offers and resources, and a route map and station services guide to 37 Amtrak stops plus connecting bus services throughout New York, western Vermont and Canada reachable via Amtrak’s Adirondack, Empire Service, Ethan Allen Express and Maple Leaf service routes.
The release of New York By Rail was delayed from late spring to fall to coincide with the recent restoration of most New York State Amtrak service and summer ridership increases. Amtrak service in New York and across the nation was scaled back in March 2020 due to COVID-19 and ridership plunged significantly. 100,000 copies of New York By Rail will be distributed at Amtrak owned stations, including New York Penn Station; New York State Thruway Rest Areas; Tourist Information Centers; mailings; and other targeted outlets. New York By Rail, a mainstay onboard New York State Amtrak trains through since 2005 is temporarily not being distributed on Amtrak trains due to new COVID-19 safety measures enacted by Amtrak.
“New York By Rail is proud to once again partner with Amtrak for seventeen consecutive years to publish an indispensable resource to planning an Amtrak getaway, said Thomas Martinelli, publisher, New York By Rail, who added “we hope this invaluable travel guide will inspire more people to want to discover all the places Amtrak can take you to throughout New York, Vermont and Canada”.
