Amtrak 50th anniversary engine #100
Author: grlhughes

Came into Chicago from Beech Grove this morning on train #51. Sorry my phone didn't let me upload any pictures. But got 2 pictures on my camera.

Is 100 a new Siemens ALC-42, or the P42 that has this number?

Thanks for the headsup,

Rich

#100 is a P42

Wouldn't it have been more appropriate to paint #50 into this scheme, or is that not in service?

The Siemens units are easy to spot- they all have the big “X” grills on the sides. 

Rumour is it will be on #30 tonight.

#50 is not that long out of works (15 months or so), so maybe it was too soon to paint it again?

Maybe 50 will be selected for one of the three remaining 50th anniversary schemes to be applied to a P42.
