Vermonter Data

On this page you will find a collection of data related to Amtrak’s Vermonter service.

 


Southbound Vermonter Departure Delays
Oct 2018 – Oct 2019

The chart above shows that the departure delays associated with Amtrak’s southbound Vermonter service (Trains 55 and 57) through the Pioneer Valley.

Commentary |  The significant increase in average delay minutes during the month of October 2019 was caused by a major tie replacement project on the New England Central Railroad’s line in Vermonter. This track project is now complete.

Northbound Vermonter Departure Delays
Oct 2018 – Oct 2019

The chart above shows that the departure delays associated with Amtrak’s northbound (Trains 54 and 56) Vermonter service through the Pioneer Valley.

Commentary |  The uptick in the average delay minutes during the month of October 2019 is, for the most part, due to the late arrival of the southbound Vermonter into Springfield.
