Remarks & Notes 
Empire Connection Sunset, Limited. The United Rail Historical Society of New Jersey's former New York Central owned Hickory Creek (obs/lounge/sleeper) and 43 (tavern/lounge) held the markers on the return from Rutland, VT of Amtrak Train 292 on Saturday, November 16, 2019. The Hickory Creek is restored to its "as delivered" external appearance, wearing the lightning stripes and lighted tail sign of the NYC's 20th Century Limited. The 20th Century Limited used NYC as its south/east terminal, but operated out of Grand Central Terminal. Since 1991 with short interruptions for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, all Empire Corridor Amtrak trains have used the Empire Connection as their regular connection to New York City, but go instead to New York's Penn Station, paralleling the West Side Highway through the Harlem Valley of New York, New York.

A continuous growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads at the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
