Video was taken from inside Amtrak Lincoln Service Business Class. The Cafe car which Business Class seating is a part of was located at the back of the train that day. In the past I haven’t bothered to record out the back window when I had the opportunity. While the trees don’t show it – it was a windy day and a lot of debris was flying around.
Lincoln Service is a 284-mile (457 km) higher-speed rail service Wikipedia – 110MPH maybe by 2017 after a lot more safety, signal, crossing, and general work is completed. Not to mention Springfield Illinois filing multiple lawsuits and dragging out the upgrade process longer.
