New Train in a New Station
Author: cr2581

With approval to move forward now granted from the FRA, Amtrak has begun to put some mileage on the next-gen Acela sets that have been stored in Penn Coach Yard for what seems like an eternity. Set 10 was out and about several times this week and made a few round trips during daylight hours between Philadelphia and Havre de Grace, MD. I photographed it yesterday as it passed through the newly constructed Septa station in Claymont, DE. I wouldn't be surprised to see more of this now as the program really needs to move forward in a hurry.

Enjoy !

Your image looks very much like a oil painting.  The vivid colors really jump out.

Couldn't have said it better. The colors, etc. really pop out in this photo to make for a great capture. Good setup.

Like it!

Claiming station has certainly changed. For the better.

It’s so weird how the locomotive doesn’t match the sides of the coaches. Thought it was a train “set.” Shouldn’t it match?

It looks "GOOD" to me!  It's not exactly matching, but I think most observers would not notice!

Soon to be covered in dirt. It will be unnoticeable then.
