Rumblings have been heard and sightings out East say that one of the original Phase III Sleepers is on the way to Beech Grove for storage. Will be on 51 into Indiana in the morning.

Wow when was the last time the 62091 (former 2301) and 2300 were in one place?

62091 is already sitting in the Grove backlot.


I found some pretty wild rumors about turning them into business or conference cars.

If in doubt, Notch it out!

Interestingly enough, my Uncle's taking that train from Philadelphia to Indy tonight.

According to the app on my droid, 51 will be 37 minutes late getting into Cincinnati.

Should be a good photo op at union station. Another amtrak is sitting in the depot tonight.
Steel is real and it feels no pain.

Exactly. The reason why I say there should be an interesting move.
