Amtrak's "Cities Sprinter" dazzled as it rolled into Union Station in the late afternoon sunlight. Today it took its inaugural revenue run from Boston to DC, even boasting a VIP passenger: Vice President Biden. It was greeted by a conglomerate of media attention including Abe Zumwalt and Jenna Jablonski of the National Association of Railroad Passengers. NARP Vice President Sean Jeans-Gail attended the launch ceremony yesterday at Philadelphia 30th Street Station.
We treasure the opportunity to see these electric locomotives in their shiny new condition -- perhaps the only time we'll see them this pristine for the next several decades of service we are sure they will provide.
