AVR 4001
Title:  AVR 4001
Description:  One of the newer acquisitions of the Allegheny Valley Railroad that has eluded me until now. Here it was going west with some speed on Track 1 past the Amtrak platform. The freight train was for the busy SWP Railroad. This rebuilt EMD GP40-3 is former CBQ 183 GP40 built in December 1966 and later became BN 3013 GP40, NHL 3013 GP40, KCS 4742 GP40/GP40-3.
