    Default Rohr Turboliner

    Started drawing an Amtrak Turboliner yesterday, have a coach running. Being as Fonda is on the CR mainline there is a chance to see the afternoon Empire State Express when you end the day in Fonda.

    Paul, What we need for the Conn River is an EMD E8a with the new paint that was the head end for the Montrealer in the fall of 1975.Amtrak428 01.jpg
    More on this to come.

    Whoops ! My mistake. I meant to say E9a. #428 was involved in the Amtrak Montrealer Amtrak 428 Wreck.jpgwreck of Nov 20, 1975 at mile 89 of the Conn River Route. Had the pleasure of meeting the engineer of that train this weekend. John Henry Lancaster spent 34 as an engineer on the line as did his father.

    Not interested in building an E-9, I think if you look through a couple of dozen photos of the Montrealer back in the 70s you'll find Amtrak used E-8s on the run and if you actually find a shot of an E-9 it's rare.

    Here's a shot of the derailment from Bob Nimke's "Green Mountain Railroad".
