Amtrak to test trains at high speed

TRENTON, N.J. — Amtrak is going to break the speed limit in the Northeast Corridor. The rail service said Monday that it will operate test trains overnight at 165 miles per hour in four stretches from Maryland to Massachusetts.

Acela Express equipment will be used for the tests, which were to start at about 10:30 p.m. Monday in New Jersey and will continue into next week, Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole said.
