Remarks & Notes 
The now-preserved 4926 heels to the superelevated curve at Aberdeen, pulling a set of Budd Metroliner MU cars. By this date, the Metroliners were having mechanical issues, and the GG-1s were called back into high-speed service. The 4926 was built by PRR/Westinghouse in March, 1943, as the PRR 4933. Amtrak originally numbered it as their 926, but with the imminent arrival of the new AEM-7s in the late 1970s (to be numbered in the 900-series) a numeral "4" was added. The Central New York Chapter NRHS has the 926 on display at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, as part of their collection.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
