Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/23/2008

Eddington Station Amtrak Northeast Corridor Bensalem PA


A followup to a study of Acela noses four years ago.
First up Acela Express 2160 with trailing power car 2028 sporting the most common version devoid of red body striping, name or logo.
Power car 2027 on Acela Express 2155 has the stripe and Amtrak name, both in red.
On Acela Express 2117, power car 2005 has the plain nose with vents open on either side.
To show that things change, four years ago power car 2032 had a plain nose, but now on Acela Express 2110 it has a striped nose featuring the blue Amtrak "Three Sheets" logo. Also both power cars appear to have a splash of yellow on the A end truck assembly, something not seen on the other three sets pictured.
