Bring ‘er on Back

January 6, 2020

Every day the Lake Shore Limited engages in a ritual at the Albany-Rensselaer, New York, station that is as old as the train itself.

The Boston and New York sections separate and a new locomotive is put onto No. 48 to take it to New York City.

It is July 1999 and I’m watching that ritual play out as a crew members gives the engineer of P32DMAC No. 712 a signal to back up and couple onto the consist of No. 48.

Soon I’ll be back on board and on my way to the Big Apple.
