I miss seeing Levin's Warrior Ridge, PRR 120 Business Car, Little Juaniata (spelling?), and the E8s........But the later are retired due to non-PTC compliant as far as I know.

Beautiful equipment to see. Thanks for sharing.

The broad view generates a question. What trains would Amtrak generate at 30th St these days that would require an equipment layover in the Penn Coach Yard?

Did not know that any of the four Boston and Maine streamlined sleepers still existed.

According to this website:

"Lamberts Point" was built in 1918 by Pullman as business car #200 for the Norfolk & Western Railway. It features cherry woodwork with brass fixtures throughout the car, which includes two large bedrooms, a dining room and lounge. ...

During the 1980's this car was based in Norfolk, Virginia and used in various excursions featuring Norfolk & Western steam locomotive #611. In 1985, it was even used on a special six-day trip between Virginia and Kansas City, Missouri. It was later acquired by its current owner, the Friends of the 261

However, it seems like it's up for sale - Ozark Mountain Railcar has it listed on their website.

That listing is old. Lambert's Point is now owned by a private owner who has it stored along with his other 2 cars (the Crafts and Beach).
