Amtrak 40th Engines to Chicago This Morning
« on: May 05, 2011, 06:21:57 AM »
156 is leading, 66 is third out.  Looking at the numbers, it appears to be a Superliner set, so train 29?  By milepost 300 on the Chicago Line at 5:49am.  Apparently these will be the two in Chicago for Train Day.

the PRRC might be taking the Cardinal up to the city on saturday to see these guys and the E8s, as well as some downtown railfanning.  Thanks for the insight thought, someone had mentioned a week ago but they were unsure of the details.  I figured they'd have them all parted in DC on the 7th for a photo op, but I guess we're lucky to get a pair here in Chicago
