Amtrak Northeast Corridor Croydon and Cornwells Heights Stations January 29 and 30 2009


The 72nd Annual New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce Walk to Washington started with a train ride. The train made stops at Newark, Metropark, New Brunswick, Trenton, Philadelphia PA and Wilmington DE on its way to an overnight stay in the nation's capital. A pair of AEM-7AC's pulled the thirteen Amfleet cars, the current ecomomic situation probably responsible for the smaller consist compared to previous years (stills of 2004, 2005, and 2008, videos on YouTube).
Though downsized, it is still one of the larger trains on the corridor, with four cafe cars and 9 coaches, here putting out a little brake smoke as it enters the curve west of Croydon.
The return trip the next day was right on time through Cornwells Heights.
