Railfan Pictures of the Week - 9/13/2020
Amtrak Thirtieth Street Station Philadelphia PA September 9 1995
The last westbound Broadway Limited rolls into Thirtieth Street Station.
On the nose of E60MA AMTK 602 is a banner memorializing the passing.
The diesel power for the trip to Chicago shoves a pair of MHC's onto what will now be the head end going west.
The banner, taken off 602, is now placed on F40PH AMTK 315, who along with 384, will take the last train west.
Before departure, the group on the ground gets one last photo.
Minutes later, the last westbound departs, passing the former PRR steam plant, which would join the Broadway in oblivion 14 years later.
And in a moment ...
it is gone.
Having done the honors on the electric portion of the run, E60MA AMTK 602 pulls out of the station, waiting for its next job.
The penultimate eastbound Broadway Limited pulls into Thirthieth Street with none of the fanfare of the westbound.
And AMTK 602 trundles back to the station to hook up to another Broadway, one more time.
