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.

PV photo opportunity: Six cars will move from NYP to HUN on train 51(18). These are KITCHI GAMMI CLUB, NYC 43 and four Morristown & Erie Railway cars leased to C. P. Huntington Society for the four New River trains. In order to handle the additional tonnage, the train should have two locomotives west of WAS.

The Society is using only privately owned passenger cars this year, because Amtrak wanted too much money for use of their own coaches and cafe cars.

It just passed me south of Jersey Avenue, it's quite a sight. (I wasn't expecting it, so sadly no pictures.)
