Now if they could only clean up that conglomery of catenary poles they would have something. Beautiful trains- horid looking views from beautiful trains.

Great shot, Robert! These new units look like 'mad beasts.' Maybe Amtrak should put some teeth on the front and call it 'The Iron Tiger!'

The AEM7s had those really fat, wide, large numbers in the numberboards, and also had a nose headlight, which kept the headlight glare away. All the features that allowed one to read the numbers and clearly identify the train better when it passed you at high speed. After we adapted such through actual practice in the field, we seem to be predictably taking a step backwards once again.

Can't wait to start seeing these on the NEC. If I'm lucky I hope to see one when I return home for Spring Break. I bet they look great running across the Susquehanna River Bridge

I agree. I don't recall the canary for the French TGV being that "busy" with that much "clutter" however, it does give a nice illusion of a tunnel.

Beautiful news shot Robert; not easy to do. I for one love this section of catenary. To me it shouts technical prowess and fascinating symmetrical complexity.

The color of that headlight makes it look like a model's LED lights - more bluish than usual. (I know LEDs are now used for step lights, numberboards, etc.) Great shot with great lighting!
