Nice. I'm sure the Hickory Creek was saying "we didn't used to go this way"! :-D

Well Mr. Rockingham, at least "Hickory Creek" can say that!!

"Sandy Creek", owned by Wick Moorman and liveried NS (N&W) Tuscan Red, must wonder how she can be so "blasphemous".

But all should be thankful both those "two of a kind" cars, that I got to ride in circa 1962-63, were saved.

Monica's gang; ready for a photo op?

Nice Amtrak PR video. What LD trains are in the video? Especially the first one, and then a three unit one (Empire Builder?) The Crescent is crossing the lone bridge near the end. But what about the single unit train shown?

Almost the entire first 2 minutes of the 2.5 minute video, where the Dining car and Lounge cars were separated by two coaches, was the Empire Builder, the train at the coast was certainly the Coast Starlight, it even had the tell-tale Pacific Parlour car. I agree the Viewliner train was the Crescent either entering or exiting New Orleans. I'm thinking the last Superliner train in the desert was the Southwest Chief, it wasn't long enough to be the California Zephyr or the Sunset Limited, imho.

If that was the SW Chief, the shot was near Winslow Az or Needles Ca.

This picture shows Amtrak No. 49, the Lake Shore Limited, at Utica, NY's Union Station on June 19th.

Here's a short video I made showing 49's departure:

09/01/17 Here is a video of Amtrak Empire Service train 236 flying down the Hudson Line towards Grand Central Terminal. With Metro North Express 846 hot on its heels! I'm sure the Amtrak left it behind at some point lol. Enjoy!
