AMTK 498
Title:  AMTK 498
Description:  This locomotive was built as Pennsylvania Railroad 5809 and was subsequently renumbered Penn Central 4309 before becoming Amtrak 315. It received a Head End Power generator at Altoona in September 1974 and was renumbered 498 in November 1975, when all of the remaining E-units were put into the 400-series. In 1983 it was traded to Conrail for a pair of SW8's and became CR 4020. When CR was broken up, it was assigned Norfolk Southern 1000; but was sold and regained its original number as Juniata Terminal 5809.

Es, Fs and washboards
Title:  Es, Fs and washboards
Description:  The engine tracks at New Haven have a couple of F 40s and a lone E 8 ready to take the parade of Boston trains east-this is long before the electrification to Boston. A group of old New Haven "washboards" so named for their fluted stainless side panels, and now in MOW service, adds a decidedly New Haven flavor to the scene.

Ready power
Title:  Ready power
Description:  A look at the ready tracks in New Haven shows a couple of units peculiar to the region. The E8 is one of two that worked the Shore Line in that period, the other being 499, The F 40s assigned region is given away by the "ghetto grilles" on the windshields. Rock throwers were prevalent along the Shore Line in those days.
