Waiting For Their Next Move

When Amtrak removed equipment from service it often moves it to its Beech Grove shops near Indianapolis. Such was the case with these Heritage Fleet cars that I found sitting at Beech Grove in March 1995. I was at “the Grove” as part of a tour sponsored by the then named Indiana Rail Passenger Association.

Beech Grove might have looked familiar to these cars as they had been inside the shops years earlier to be converted to Head End Power and to get new interior appointments.

Now they awaited being sold to another operator or, perhaps, donated to a museum. Imagine the thousands of people who rode in these cars to various points on the Amtrak network although as Heritage equipment their assignments were largely confined to the East, South and Midwest.
