Northeast Corridor express trains between New York Penn Station and Trenton will be testing the feature over three months in the fall. If it works, they may expand the program to other routes.

The Star-Ledger reports that "[p]assengers on the library-quiet cars will be prohibited from using cell phones and must disable sound features on pagers, games, computers and other electronic devices. Conversations must be conducted in subdued voices and headphones used at a volume that cannot be heard by other passengers."
