Ready for a Capitol Experience

It’s July 2000 at Washington Union Station and Amtrak’s westbound Capitol Limited is boarding.

I have sleeping car accommodations and am one of the first to board.

I have enough time to walk the platform and make a few images of the train.

Today’s No. 29 will be pulled by the standard two P42DC units, but note the inter-generational liveries.

Lead unit No. 52 is wearing the Phase IV livery while the trailing locomotive sports Phase III colors.
