Amtrak train #242, the Albany-Rensselaer to New York Empire Service train, is boarding passengers ten minutes before departure at the Albany-Rensselaer station on January 26, 2017. P32AC-DM 700, one of Amtrak's "dual mode" engines (which operate with either diesel power or electric power) leads this five-car train. This station is undergoing renovations, and the new platforms are nearing completion. Photographed on railroad property with permission and full PPE.
The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
