Railfan Pictures of the Week - 02/03/2008

Amtrak Northeast Corridor Eddington Station Bensalem PA January 31 2008


A double for lunch? How about three late trains on the NEC? First of the double headers was Train 91 the southbound Silver Star with AEM-7 931 at the point, running 15 minutes late.
Next was AEM-7 933 and sibling on Amtrak Regional 95 with the usual 8 Amfleet consist, running about 50 minutes late.
The annual New Jersey Chamber of Commerce charter train, running a fashionably late 5 minutes, always gets a double shot of power as it is hauling a lot of fat cats from the Garden State in the fifteen Amfleets on the head end ...
and three New Jersey Transit Comet V's on the tail end.
It makes for the longest passenger train seen on the NEC.
