WASHINGTON – Amtrak today announced the launch of Acela Nonstop, a new offering with direct service between Washington Union Station (WAS) and New York Penn Station (NYP), beginning Monday, Sept. 23, with tickets now available. The initial weekday only schedule includes one southbound (NYP-WAS) and one northbound train (WAS-NYP) per day with an approximate trip time of two hours and 35 minutes. The southbound train will depart NYP at 6:35 a.m. and is scheduled to arrive at WAS around 9:10 a.m. The northbound train will depart WAS at 4:30 p.m., and arrive at NYP around 7:05 p.m.

“The new Acela Nonstop service will have you halfway to your New York City or DC destination in the time it would take you to board a flight,” said Amtrak President & CEO Richard Anderson. “This new service will offer an ideal solution for travelers who want to save time and travel between city center DC and New York.”

Yeah if they can't drop the cost of the ticket and subsidize it heavily it won't work.  

The commuter budget buses are drastically cheaper with slightly longer travel time while the airlines are around the same cost of the railroad with tremendously faster travel time.
