If Amtrak had kept up maintaining the Geeps, they never would have needed any F40PHs, or for that matter any SDP40Fs or P30CHs.
 
Also, if just a bit more work were done to the GG-1s, there would have been no need for any E-60s, which themselves were a poor replacement for the old PRR beauty.  Pity that Amtrak's "Phase I" colors were a poor fit for the GG-1.

I take it that Keystone Corridor train is terminating in Harrisburg?  If so, it really ought to have an electric motor at point instead of wasting diesel fuel.  If the last stop is Pittsburgh, there'd at least be an excuse, but then the engine change should occur at Harrisburg...
 
Also, this was a four-track main at one time?  Looks like it's been cut down to two.
