Autumn Express

Recommended Posts

I rode the express on Sunday. The car host said Saturday's train was sold out with 600 passengers and there were 500 on Sunday's train. The trip was definitely rare mileage, going through Oak Island and Croxton yards and passing under the Amtrak main line at the North River portals. The ride up the Hudson was nice. Managed to get some Amtrak and MN shots on the other side. Photo opportunity (NOT to be confused with photo runby) at Rhinecliff.

I was surprised there is catenary on the Empire Division in the tunnel. Only diesels operate between NYP and ALB so I don't understand the need for catenary. BUT it was needed because neither diesel (one on each end because of change of directions) was a dual mode.
