Final Days before Amtrak on the Penn Central
Posted by lvt1000 on Thursday, August 10, 2017 5:55 AM

I'm  looking for pictures of PC Train #23 on April 30th 1971 at Lancaster and PC Train #31 at North Philadelphia or Paoli on April 29th 1971. I was on 23 for its final run and my Dad was trainman on 31 for its final pre-Amtrak run.

I asked a similar question about 6 years ago and found one person that probably met my father on a nodding basis as a passenger on #48 but no one with pictures. There was a big crowd of photographers for 23 on 4/30/71 at Lancaster and I was in all their pictures standing in the vestibule of the snack bar coach. #31 also had a following in the final days of April 71. Soooo, I figured I would ask one more time in this venue. Thanks.
