Remarks & Notes 
At dusk, one of the original United Aircraft TurboTrains running as Penn Central train 3002 between New York and Boston glides across the Mystic River swing bridge on the Connecticut coast. These pioneers of North American high speed rail were fun to ride but proved to be mechanically unreliable.
