Now that I have a better handle on my initial outburst, some further information:
Amtrak’s regional trains can run through up to 6″ of water; Acela’s can handle 4″. And currently in Rhode Island? Up to 21″ of water.
Although regional service is resuming in “limited” fashion, it is also resuming via its “in-land” route. So you can wave to the Ocean State as the train heads west before arriving in Boston. But here’s the good news: I-95 has reopened in R.I.
We’ll see you there.
