Amtrak Wilmington DE Shop
Author: GWHEN

All the Photos were taken while I was a camper at Railcamp 2011.

#1 Photo shows a small part of the engine shop (Their was more Diesel electric then actual Electric) They had about six Genset Locomotives around the shop 4 inside 1 working the yard and 1 waiting for service. Another Locomotive in the yard was Amtrak's one and only SW1 #737 (No pic though)

#2 Notice all the wheels but notice something else a old baggage car in the background.

#3 Brand New disc brakes.

Nice shots - thanks for sharing the view.

I'm wondering what's under the tarp, too.
Probably nothing - but wouldn't it be nice
if Amtrak had painted an overdue heritage
electric for the NEC?

The Genset locomotives you are referring to are not Gensets, they are actually GP-15 locomotives. The Amtrak owned Gensets are based in Los Angeles.

800 series Amtrak GE's are actualy P40's vs P42's.

Nice series of photos of Amtrak behind the scenes.

That's appears Prototype Viewliner Sleeper 2300, still in original Phase 3 Paint -- the 2301 was renumber to 62091 and last seen in Phase IV.

From the outline Id say a burned up Toaster (AEM7) is under the tarp.
