Amtrak Metroliner and GE E60

Took a trip to the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum today, figured I'd share the pics of the Metroliner and GE-E60 I took while out. Old #603 is starting to show some serious signs of weathering :( Enjoy!

Sweet! That E60 must be a monster in person!:tup:

 

I've seen it a lot as I tend to visit there at least twice a summer. It never amazes me this thing was doing 80mph. The GG1 is bigger but, it at least seems designed for those speeds. I'd like to see to it at least cosmetically restored but I'm sure it will be awhile as there are more important things sitting in that yard that deserve it more.

 

Side note and slightly off topic. For those who care, GG1 #4935 is back indoors and on display again. (Was in the shop in July)

At least that E60 is not tagged up like the NJT one in Boonton:

Not to mention some vandal screwed with everything meaning it will take alot to get her up and running again:(

 

How (besides the tags) did the overall paint job on that hold up better then #603? It actually has some gloss to it still while #603 is faded to heck.

 

Shame still. One of the worst designed engines is probably more popular in retirement then when it was active. I bet this thing would have killed if electric freight operations succeeded

There is a version out west of the e60 used for hauling coal it works quite well. When NJT paints something the paint lasts LOL. Actually it had a touch up once before and was tagged over again..

 

I was just thinking that about (NJT) and its paint jobs! ;) Some of those older geeps have paint as old as the E60. :cool:

 

What cab unit is that on the other side of the E60? Is it A or B unit?

 

I spy an RDC-2, and some other very :tup: stuff there.

 

Nice work! :eek:

 

- A

Great pics, but a sad subject.
