Amtrak's jet-powered Turboliner turbine train offers the advantages of jet aircraft travel, yet it never leaves the ground. The French-built Turboliner runs with five wide cars, capable of carrying 296 passengers in quiet comfort. Fully-reclining seats and convenient food and beverage facilities are just a few of the train's many features. Its smooth ride and dependable performance are made possible by two aircraft-type turbine engines, which enable the Turboliner to reach a top speed of 125 mph.
