Amtrak Silver Meteor at Torresdale.

A well-timed visit trackside to the SEPTA station at Torresdale, Pennsylvania allowed for photography of several Amtrak trains on the North East Corridor in rapid succession.

The new ACS-64 ‘City Sprinter’ electrics are become more common and its nice to get them while they are still clean.

I was especially pleased to catch Amtrak’s Silver Meteor with one of the new electrics.
