Amtrak-03 7-11-98 by eyepilot13 Amtrak-03 7-11-98 by eyepilot13
7/11/98: From Canal Street, an Amtrak SW pulls some roadrailers from the South connector. I still occasionally see an AMTRAK roadrailer trailer on the NS on the IHB

I miss the Amtrak Roadrailers. Shame to see all that mail service gone from the rails.

I know!!! Amtrak is so much more boring...one baggage car and then the bi-levels, once in a while a private varnish or a heritage loco...otherwise Bleh!

Our local Amtrak (The Pere Marquette) is usally a Cabbage, 3 or 4 superliners and a loco. It is very rare that we see the private varnish, and it seems like most of the time we do, it is either coming to or going from the shortline I work for. Private car storage is kind of a big thing for us. We had the ex-NYC Babbling Brook until recently, and the famous NAVY observation car has been known to park on one of our sidings before.

I used to love seeing the cross-country runs through Northern Indiana with all the baggage, mail and express cars outnumbering coaches and sleepers 3 to 1. I do get to see the 110 mph Porter, IN-Kalamazoo, MI runs on occasion, but they go so fast that you can't really see them unless you catch one at a station stop.

Very interesting perspective, of course Centraa always draws the varnish in Summer, but I miss all the extra high speed boxes Amtrak had...at least I got pix!

Yeah, if it wasn't for the pictures, the memories of the boxes would go the way of wreck trains, RPOs and Alcos.
