Thanks, I'd seen them enough I thought they might be.

Forgot to mention, while biking saw 4 PVs at Albany, one was C&O's Chapel Hill, and another was a dome.
All of those PVs are based there.
I can't say for sure, but it seems since they redid the track layout and built to stub sidings with hotel power that I see PVs parked in Albany a lot more often. I'm hoping that's true. I know it was a goal.
Before the recent upgrades, were the all based here or is this an increase?
Before the recent (Boardman era) improvements at ALB, which included providing PV parking (space for both long term storage and for transient visiting cars) on easily accessible yard sidings (with HEP and water) north of the station building, no private cars were stored on Amtrak at ALB. The cars that currently call ALB their home were stored elsewhere.
NORTHERN PACIFIC 549 (dome)
NORTHERN PACIFIC 313 (dome)
and at least one other car
I'm not sure who at Amtrak deserves the credit for ensuring the upgrade included provisions for PV parking, but I believe Brian Gallagher most likely played a substantial role in it.
