I believe we're still waiting on the answer to jdcnosse's post here...

I'm gonna guess Lamy too...I seem to recognize that car :-P and Lamy was where the SWC stopped last time I was on it to pick up some private cars.

I'll post a picture however :)

I used to be with ‘it,’ but then they changed what ‘it’ was. Now what I’m with isn’t ‘it,’ and what’s ‘it’ seems weird and scary.

Since nobody has taken a shot at it, let me do it- the last among the photos posted so far is Philadelphia 30th Street Station.
I am at work, now I will go home and post a photo with my question (just did pre-boarding if you'd call that Posted Image)


Edit: Sorry I did not see 30th Street was already answered. I take back my pre-boarding claim Posted Image

FYI
TCRT is correct, I just looked at a short video from my one visit to GRR and it matches.


I hosted a game like this on another forum (trivia, mostly non-rail) where I posted one photo a day and kept it open all day with replies instructed to be hidden with "spoiler" tags so people can guess w/o seeing prior answers.
I have a few of my own, but it appears TCRT has dibs.

Not a bad idea and it appears the forum software does in fact honor spoiler tags even though we don't seem to use them all that much.

In any case the floor is yours TCRT...

Ok, as soon as I can teach myself to add a photo (i.e. shortly) I will have one here.

Yes Acela150, TCRT's posting made me think of one of my favorite stations with the street running. I saw the Auto Train that day too.
