Northern Pacific 549
BABBLING BROOK
train 58(05) from NOL to CHI

Dome coach 549 is making her first trip on Amtrak since NRPC retired her in the 1970s. She has just completed a lengthy overhaul & refurbishment in New Orleans, and looks great in original NP colors. You will find her operating on the 2019 Autumn Colors Express (successor to the New River Train) in West Virginia later this month.

Saw some photos of her on Instagram, and she really does look beautiful. https://www.instagram.com/p/B3N8GspHXOW

NS 23 will also be on the train apparently.
My original posting that you referenced pertained to a movement of KITCHI GAMMI CLUB on train 19 departing NYP on JUNE 27, 2019.

Update: LAMBERTS POINT is on train 50(10) from CHI to NYP. Could come off at WAS, but I suspect will run thru to NYP , given that it is based at PHL. Car may have been re-lettered with the new name CONEWAGO CREEK.

DOVER HARBOR on The Ethan Allen
October 12, New York to Rutland
October 15, Rutland to New York

While in Vermont, car will travel from Rutland to Burlington and return on Vermont Rail System.

MOONLIGHT DOME + BERLIN on train 3(11) from CHI to ABQ.

MOONLIGHT DOME is substituting for FRANK THOMSON. Amtrak was unwilling to add FRANK THOMSON to train 51(09) at IND for the trip to CHI because the Cardinal was more than 45 minutes late arriving at IND. So, despite the padding in the Cardinal’s schedule, someone at CNOC decided to screw the car owner and his passengers.

That may have been a scheduled post. Are you in Chi today? If yes, there’s always the Roosevelt Road viaduct over the Union Station throat..l

At South Station in Boston Saturday afternoon, I saw an odd Amtrak consist on track #1: two Genesis diesels with a single cafe car between them. Presumably this short train was going somewhere other than the NEC. Was it some sort of deadhead move , perhaps to Albany?

I was there for a bit Saturday. Problem is that viaduct is a haul from where I’m usually at and it was kind of cold... I’m out in LA on business today and going to sneak out and see 4014 at lunch.
