Norfolk Southern Research Car #32 in Penn Station. I got some interior shots through the window as train had not yet departed for Sunnyside Yard. I should have zoomed in on the notes to see what they were planning. :-)

Sorry about quality. My iPhone lens is cracked.

Not bad photos, regardless of your phone and the setting (PSNY is notoriously bad for photos.) Mostly it looks like NS #32’s research is about upholstery patterns from my grandparents’ den :-D

If that's a research car, I want to see the comfort level of the executive cars... :-D :wink:

An Amtrak special movement went north through Prospect Park, PA at 2:37 pm today. I only got a glimpse, but it consisted of a P-something, 1 ACS-64, a couple of Amfleets, and an inspection car---FWIW.
