A specially-painted pair of RTL Turboliner power cars make a rare appearance in Boston as they tow the X2000 demonstrator into South Station. Note the ripple effect of the gas-turbines' hot exhaust. Photo by Rich Stroshane. 5/11/93 Boston, MA
Turboliner #154, normally assigned to New York's Empire Service, pulls the Swedish X2000 trainset into South Station after propelling it on a 101-mph run to Providence, RI and back. Photo by Rich Stroshane. 5/11/93 Boston, MA
