Amtrak Northeast Corridor

Croydon Station Croydon Pennsylvania August 2000


Back in the summer of 2000, there was a lot of variety to be found on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. For example, the big GE E60-CPs were still running. While one or two could often be found on the largest trains on the corridor like the long distance Silver Service or The Crescent and the remaining Clockers, they would also pop up on the smallest trains, the Keystones.

Back then, Croydon Station was still Amshacks and low level platforms, and with the Acela's still in testing, the premier trains on the NEC were the Metroliners running with AEM-7 power, which had sufficient power for up to 10 Amfleets, although 6-7 was the norm.
Every once in a while, though, a surprise like the Corridor Clipper would show up ...
or a MARC AEM-7 way out of its territory, and pulling Amfleets to boot.
The usual setup for a Keystone on the corridor was Amtrak AEM-7 and a trio of Amfleets.
But sometimes even the Keystones surprised, like this two car train.
