Mobile billboards "talking to each other."  The train facing the camera will be the next day's eastbound "Valley Forge," which was the only Harrisburg train to carry a working cafe.  Now there are none.

The station is full of Metroliners!!!  At one time, there was a lot of talk of single-tracking and permenantly de-electrifying the line.  But now there are more round trips than there were in many years, and electric power has returned to the Keystone line.  As I mentioned before, the Mets are still there, but are now in depowered form.  Thank you, Mr. Rendell for all the $$$$ for new track and ties and for the refurbishment of additional locomotives and cab cars for this service.  May your legacy live on!!

Around the same time, I took a trip to Newark, NJ to photograph the PCC cars on the Newark City Subway.  I took a Metroliner up to Newark which was representing a Clocker.  First up on track 4 is this Harrisburg train at the upper level 30th St. Station.

Last one.  "Next and final stop, New York Penn Station!!"  Hope you enjoyed.  This story will be continued on the "PCC-America's Streetcar" thread.  Honestly, when I tried to resize these photos, after I clicked "upload photo," the photo did not come up; just a small multi-colored square.  Is it the software or my computer?  Honest, I tried.

While awaiting the passage of the Liberty Ltd, I caught this HHP8 leading a southbound along the NEC at Norwood PA....

This shot not only showcases the Metroliner, but also (at right) the train announcement boards.  Before electronic screeens, a RR worker had to come out with a long pole with a hook on the end and pull the appropriate train board down from the metal hood above.  Wish one of those would pop up on eBay ...

Hey Charlie,
 
That was Regional train #155.  I saw it at Grays Ferry Ave in Philly.

"This is the interior of the car I was in, looking down the roomette aisle. "
 
I believe these car called "Economy" rooms.  Roomettes were for single passenger travel, the "Economy" rooms are suitable for single or double occupacy.
