Remarks & Notes 
For many years, Amtrak trains to Harrisburg operated out of Suburban Station (vs 30th St) in Philadelphia, and old Metroliners were the equipment of choice. Since the Metroliners were prone to mechanical issues during cold weather, An E60 was often added. Such is the case here, with #950 doing the honors.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Some are loved, others are hated. In the end, they are failures.
