Take a virtual tour of Brightline higher-speed passenger trains

SUN SENTINEL – What will Brightline passengers see when they pass through the new stations and board the higher-speed passenger trains?

The Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations, which open the week of Jan. 8, will have automatic self-service ticketing, security screening and food kiosks among the amenities.

Once on board the trains, there are 66 seats to choose from in the Smart Coaches and about 50 seats in the roomier Select Coaches. There are different seating configurations too. Some coaches will have a row of single seats, some with two seats, some with four facing each other, some with tables and some without.

Every high-back seat is a combination of real and synthetic leather. Passengers sit on the more durable leather in the middle of the seat where there is more wear and tear. The easier-to-clean synthetic leather is on the sides and backs of the seats where there is more hand contact.

The seats are wider and slide forward to recline so no passengers lose leg room behind each seat. There are metal handles on every seat that passengers can grip as they walk through the moving train. At 32 inches, the aisles are wide enough for strollers and wheelchairs too.

Coaches have baggage and bicycle racks, touch-free bathrooms, free WiFi, power and USB plugs at every seat, and food service areas among other things.

The initial Brightline service will run between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. The MiamiCentral station is scheduled to be added in the first four months of 2018.
