With the West Warren Mills near MP75 as a backdrop, a short (20 axles) Amtrak 449 rolls west at track speed.

Enjoy -

Nice shot - short train but plenty of power (yes, I know it is the 49 run through power). Reminds me of 405 when it ran that same route with an E 8 and a single coach.

I remember seeing 405 down South Station back.  My sister went back to Kentucky on that in 66...one coach....The reason why that route was choosen is that out of Boston you could no longer connect to the C&O George Washington in DC at that time.  I am wondering why now my sister did not consider the PRR routing around Horseshoe.   My sister's husband worked for the L&N and had a free pass so maybe that could of had something to do with it.   Will never know the reason why now!!!!!
