New England Metroliner invitation, 1982.

Invitation to the inaugural run of the New England Metroliner (Boston-New York) on October 28, 1982; includes two sided paper card and envelope. This was the first significant expansion of Metroliner Service beyond the Washington-New York market (Amtrak had extended service to New Haven in November 1971). Unlike its counterpart on the southern leg of the Northeast Corridor, the New England Metroliner was not electrified, but it did make limited stops, covering the distance between New York and Boston in 3 hours, 55 minutes.
