I tried something different this year: going up to Delaware for Amtrak’s busiest day. Ironically, it resulted in more freight action but missing the special Amtrak moves.
My friend Chris was looking to go try somewhere new this year, so we returned to the spot in Newark DE that we had scouted out earlier. It’s got a classic PRR signal bridge and a junction with the NS line down the Delmarva Peninsula.
It was a nice change of pace, but the copious freight action actually screwed us out of the oddball passenger stuff we were after that day.
