Two "Pooches" descend the grade at Horseshoe Curve, pulling a Lancaster Chapter NRHS excursion. Twenty-five of these 143-ton cowl-units were built for Amtrak, 1975-76; none survive.

Amtrak & Via Rail, along with commuter trains go here. Also their predecessors. PS. I only like diesels or electric.
