Part 1 Amtrak’s great Pennsylvania Railroad, a backwards “Cab Ride”

Video shot by

Train 79, the Friday morning “Carolinian”. From NY to Wash. DC. It’s the entire railroad! Impressive NJ Transit commuter action, watch as dozens of inbound trains receive approach and clear signal rushing their way into big apple. Politicians note, see the big bottle neck, this is why we need a new Hudson river tunnel! Watch as another bottleneck develops because of downed wires in the Baltimore tunnel (part 2). As repairs are being made, both Acela and a Marc train have to wait their turn to transverse the ancient tunnel. Recorded in the autumn of 2013
