68M with brand new string of Amtrak ballast hoppers
Author: VFPNSFAN

Under the lights at MP 24.5, 68M comes east bound for Morrisville, PA.  Sound of the train is slightly different I think due to the brand new wheels.

I saw what I think was H68 head west on Monday evening with a long cut of brand new Amtrak hoppers, but they were grey (these seem green in your video, unless the lighting is playing tricks with me).

In any case it was strange to hear a train rolling by that was so quiet!

Neat stuff Doug!

Seems to already have a flat wheel about 8 cars deep...otherwise that is a sound you don't hear very often!  The hum of a brand new train set...
