Amtrak #43 climbs the Curve ~90 minutes late
Author: JPB

Amtrak #43, the westbound Pennsylvanian, is scheduled to ascend Horseshoe Curve maybe 15 minutes after 5pm but on Friday 2/19/21, it was operating about 90 minutes late as seen on these screen captures from the Horseshoe Curve live cam. P42 125 plus 1 lead the 7 car consist up grade as the snow flies.

It harkens me back to Circa 1976, and the Broadway Limited. At the Curve, one could peek out from the vestibule and clearly see the front and rear of #41 at twilight. Two diners, two lounge cars, coaches, roomettes, bedrooms, and slumbercoaches.

Unfortunately, none of those fancy cars round the Curve today! No diners, lounges, sleepers, or other first class cars!
