• Amtrak 50th Anniversary Engines

    From Al Kaiser@1:142/926 to All on Thu Nov 18 10:40:21 2021
    Amtrak is running the 50th Anniversary Locmotive Engines on some of their routes. I've seen it on the Farpoint, NY camera and also on the Springield, MA Camera running on the Lake Shore Limted route.


    They had one on the CT Rail Line for a week and I was fortunate enough to capture it on video going thru the Quinnipac St. crossing in Wallingford.
    CT.

    I was going to try and get a couple of station stops and other run bys but
    it was on there for a week and got tranferred to some other line.

    I sent an email asking for it to be brought back for a longer run but have not got an answer from Amtrak.

    Although not directly related, I often travel via VIA in Ontario, and a week ago, because of major bridgework being done by the CNR here in Canada, the commuter trains had to venture afield (literally) using freight lines
    you don't often see them. Railfans were out in force, documenting
    the strange train movements.

    And you probably won't - get an answer, that is. Amtraak only is an
    illusion of a customer-service business. Still, I prefer it to the silver birds.
