PHOTOS: Amtrak train 1054 with MARC coaches Sunday

Posted by chuchubob on Sun Dec 1 17:53:02 2019

On previous Thanksgiving Sundays, Amtrak leased two trainsets each from NJ Transit and MARC (Maryland Area Regional Commuter) and numbered them in the 10xx series, calling them "Holiday Extras". This year they leased two sets of MARC coaches and no NJ Transit equipment. The extras were called "Holiday Commuter" this year.
I got marginal photos of train 1054 departing 30th Street Station for New York in heavy overcast and rain. The second train would have arrived at Philly after dark even without the rain.
An Amfleet cafe car brought up the rear.
