Amtrak 364 - 10.28.05

Unread post by RailCanon »

Well, the Blue Water was running ON TIME tonight, and I had nothing else to do, so I grabbed the Camera and Tripod and went over to the Amtrak Station to nab a few pics.

Click on the thumbs for a Larger picture.

I was happily surprised to see an old friend on the train again, Amtrak P42 #32, which was the final Genisis unit on Amtrak's Roster to wear the classic Phase III Paint. She looks pretty good in her new paint, but I still miss the old Phase 3.

The train was about Five cars long IIRC.
For the first time in over a month, the train has a cabbage in the consist. F40 #90219 sits on the rear of the Train:

The train takes off for Durand, Flint, Lapeer, and Port Huron. Right when I took this, I heard someone call out my name. Some other railfans at the station told me the person who did this was the conductor! I wonder how he knew me?

That's all. I hope you enjoyed.

It might have been Lee Lovelette. I'll have to post this on the boardhost boards to find out.

Amtrak reversed that move, and he is still a conductor. Thanks everyone for the comments!

Nope. Ian posted on the Shortlines board saying that Lee was working the train that night.
