It is the early morning hours of Sept. 10, 1995. Amtrak’s Broadway Limited began its final trips the day before and Nos. 40 and 41 passed each other somewhere in the western Ohio darkness.
Tomorrow, these trains will become the New York-Pittsburgh Three Rivers.
I’ve just embarked from No. 40 in Akron, Ohio, where I had boarded No. 41 in the early morning hours of Sept. 9.
I made this hand-held image as I walked along the platform toward the station.
We had no way of knowing it at the time, but Nos. 40 and 41 will return to Akron three years from now in the form of the Three Rivers when it was extended westward to Chicago.
