Amtrak Christmas Day

On this Christmas Day 1982, after a ritual of opening presents, my father, Richard Jay Solomon, brought my brother and I trackside to watch trains. Before Amtrak’s eastward Lake Shore Limited passed Warren, a set of Conrail GP40-2s rolled west on what was then a double track railway. As it was a holiday, Tucker’s Hobbies (Warren’s primary attraction) was closed for business.
