WASHINGTON — After Amtrak modified its Northeast train service Thursday following severe winter weather, the rail system expects service to return to its regular schedule on Friday.

However, customers on Acela Express train 2190, traveling between New York City and Boston, will instead get on Northeast Regional train 190 at close to the same time.

Travelers should monitor their train status. Subscribe to Amtrak alerts online, or follow their Twitter account for other announcements @AmtrakNEC.
