Bi-Level Cab at Union Station

Bi-Level Control Cab at Union Station, Washington DC

During the week of 27 December 1999, I spotted a bi-level control cab car at Union Station in Washington DC. The car was spotted by the old turntable along with several standard MARC coaches and Amfleet cars. When I managed to return the next day with my camera, a GP40WH-2 was idling directly in front of it, so I was not able to get a picture. Railpace magazine has continued to print photos of these cars as they near completion at the factory, and I would expect to see them enter service within the next few months. I assume the cab car at Union Station is there for either testing or display, and I will post further updates as soon as I learn more.
