Amtrak Northeast Corridor Chase MD and Norwood Station Norwood PA December 11 2010

Saturday, December 11, 2010, 10:15am. Chase, MD, Mile Post 81 on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. The Liberty Limited, powered by Bennett Levin's 2 E8 locomotives pulling 19 private cars carrying military personnel wounded in the service of our country, is enroute from Washington, D.C. to the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia, PA. Waving a flag that had flown over our nation's capitol, retired Army Reserve Colonel Lex Bishop lets the military personnel aboard the special train know that their service & sacrifice is appreciated.

Farther north, the train approaching Norwood Station.
Symboled Amtrak 852, there was an interesting conversation between CETC-4 and the engineer as they bounded up the corridor. The dispatcher asked if there were any raised pantographs on the train, and the response was that there were in fact NO pantographs on the train. When the train exited the Northeast Corridor at CP Arsenal, it became CSX P930 to Greenwich Yard.
