Railfan Pictures of the Week - 6/27/2021
Odds and ends around Amtrak 30th Street Station in Philadelphia September 1990
AMTK 581, one of the former AT&SF CF7's that Amtrak acquired in the 1980's, on the stub track at Race Street.
Amtrak wreck crane AMTK 16002 with flat car/crane tender AMTK 15100. The crane is now BDRV 16002.
Along side the wreck crane are four heritage cars used as offices and storage in the yard. The nearest cars were AMTK 8424 and 9007, don't have the other two numbers. They all appear to have been NYC baggage cars and were removed from the yard late in 1994.
Here on the stub track at Race Street is AMTK 202, the F40PH which as part of a wreck rebuild became an AC traction motor test bed.
Amtrak flat car AMTK 15054
Metroliner PRR/PC/AMTK 822 hung around the yard for a number of years before disappearing in the yard purge in 1994.
In the shadow of the High Line, GP10 AMTK 767 shuttling around a Material Handling car.
Can't even begin to list the different equipment in this shot.
