Arnie’s been in touch again. Not much to say except the obvious: amazing!
I’ve been watching the new postings, and I see readers have been more and more getting into videos.
Since my last video I shared with you and the readers, I’ve done a few depicting AMTRAK trains, the primary interstate passenger carrier in the U.S. I just completed one on the Amtrak Amfleet line depicting the F40PH locomotive that was used by Amtrak from 1975 to 1992. I created the video on my N scale layout simulating a run of this train from near sunset into the night in the eastern U.S. I hope you enjoy it and will consider posting it.
Other AMTRAK trains video clips I’ve done are: the E8A locomotive with Phase I paint scheme of the early 1970s; the P42 Genesis Amtrak with Superliner cars of 1992 to 2001 and still currently used in the central and western U.S.; the Amtrak Acela Express the only true high-speed rail in North America begun in 2000 which ran from Boston to Washington D.C. along the Northeast coast.
I am also now considering doing a video on the Amtrak HHP-8 (an 8000 horsepower electric loco) of 1999 to 2001 that was in operation along the Northeast Corridor for a decade. Unfortunately, HHP-8 and Amtrak Acela service were discontinued due to unreliability issues and excessive maintainance costs.
Thanks Al and regards to all the readers,
Thanks to Arnie – a fantastic display of skill. I’m deeply envious!
