Remarks & Notes 
An Amtrak Regional train zips past MORRIS Tower, a remnant of the PRR built in 1941. With the majority of freight being moved off the NEC, the tower was closed in 1990 but is still used as an Amtrak MoW base and houses air compressor equipment for the pneumatic switches that still power MORRIS interlocking.

The 21st Century brought the age of Acela, the discontinuance of the Three Rivers and introduction of the ACS-64 as Amtrak focused more on corridors and less on long haul.
