Can anybody tell me how many cars they are running on the Crescent and what order they are in? One or two engines?

Thanks in advance!

I don't think Charlottesville, VA is a crew change stop any longer for trains 19/20. It was moved to Lynchburg, VA, one stop further south. When I rode 19/20 in January, the Washington D.C. crew ran to Lynchburg. Makes sense, since the regional trains turn there, and I heard that Amtrak has wanted to move the crew change to LYH for some time. Trains 50/51, the Cardinal still change crews at Charlottesville, VA.
