Default Metro north and Amtrak

Do MNRR and Amtrak communicate via radio?
I take the train a lot from Manhattan and we always pass the Acela train and it flies by us within inches on the next track.
Do they ever communicate or know that another train is coming at high speed?

Yes they communicate via radio. The proper channels are listed in the rr database. Unless there's a problem, trains don't really talk to each other. I have ridden from NYP to Washington equipped with my radio and outside of inbound NJT trains getting radio checks from PSCC or CTEC-9 there isn't much chatter.
