ARRC blog contributor Jack Norris wrote the following after reading in the November 2016 eBulletin the feature about the day that Amtrak came to Akron in 1990.
I liked the latest newsletter that I received today. My favorite Amtrak ride to Chicago was the Broadway Limited. I was heartbroken when it ended Sept. 9-10, 1995.
Now, if I do travel to Chicago I go to Washington, D.C., and pick up the Capitol Limited.
Here is my shot of the last westbound Broadway Limited, taken at Metropark Station in Iselin, New Jersey. I believe the Pennsylvania Railroad’s Broadway Limited tail car Mountain View was supposed to be on the back, but a failed inspection sidelined it.
Your picture in the same issue of the X2000 also brought back memories. I rode the train twice when it was in regular service. It was a comfortable train, but I like the way the Acela turned out better.
