Amtrak conducting security drill

By Washington Post editors

Amtrak passengers will see more police at stations and on trains from New Hampshire to Virginia as part of a drill to test counterterrorism and incident response capabilities.

Amtrak says Thursday's drill is not a response to any particular threat.

The company says passengers can expect heightened patrols, increased security on trains, explosives-sniffing dogs and random bag inspections.

The drill was scheduled for the morning and afternoon rush hours.
