Penny, be on the lookout for the double barrel 91 tomorrow (20th). 91(19) started from New York today with two consists coupled together head to tail. It is a sixteen car train, and will have two P42s out of Washington according to reports from folks up in the NEC-land. There is a video of it too passing Edison I think.

 

BTW Maria is now projected to be below Cat 3 974-110mph) when it comes abeam of Florida on Sunday, several hundred miles to the east.

97 was supposed to start from Orlando today.  Looks like someone has forgotten to initialize it in the tracking system.

It looks like 97 is showing up on the Amtrak track a train map now.

Unless 91 is fairly late (but not real late) tomorrow, I will not be around to walk to the tracks to take a look at the unusual sight.
