Amtrak’s Vermonter in the F40PH Era

Looking back at all of our travels, I’m amazed at the number of times we visited New England. Given all of the small charming towns, villages and cities; beautiful scenery; and plenty of railroad opportunities, I understand why we visited so often and, hopefully, will continue to do so.

In this post are some examples of seeing Amtrak’s Vermonter running between St. Albans, Vermont, and Washington via Springfield, Massachusetts, and New York City.

The first four images show the southbound Vermonter arriving in White River Junction, Vermont in October 1997.

Visible in the top image is Boston & Maine 4-4-0 No. 494 on statics display. It is one of three B&M steamers still existing.

The bottom image shows the northbound Vermonter crossing the White River at West Hartford, Vermont in June 1998.
