Amtrak Northeast Corridor Eddington Station Bensalem PA August 31 2005
The Plasser American Corp.-built Switch Exchange System, or SES, was moved from North Jersey to Harrisburg PA for work on the Keystone Corridor.
It was pulled by two of Amtrak's new switchers, MP15B's 576 and 578.
These cars are used to transport the prefabricated switches which, due to their size, are titled for clearance considerations.
These cars are used to clean the ballast.
The train also includes a number of Amtrak flat cars among the specialized equipment.
