Lake Shore Limited 2015 Style

Amtrak at Bort 01

For much of 2015, the Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited has operated only between Boston and Albany-Rensselaer, New York.

That is due to a station construction project in Rensselaer that is designed to make Amtrak operations there more efficient.

Subsequently, the Viewliner sleepers ordinary assigned to the Boston section have been shifted to the New York section of Nos. 48 and 49.

This photo of No. 48 heading east at Bort Road near North East, Pennsylvania, shows the state of the art for most of 2015 with the three Viewliner sleepers up front.

Also new on the train in 2015 was the assignment of new Viewliner baggage cars. Heritage dining cars also continued to operate on many days, including this one.

As 2015 was drawing to a close, work was set to begin on building new Viewliner diners.
