|Amtrak's Pennsylvanian, train # 44. February 2003|
This is what I get for not taking notes when out. This is either the last or second to last eastbound for Amtrak's Pennsylvanian, train # 44 in February 2003. When I lived in the dorm at Cleveland State, I used to drive down to station and watch the westbound Pennsylvanian arrive, hoping that the second unit would be a beloved F40. Things started to heat up when news broke about Skyline Connection. If my memory serves me right, Norfolk Southern and Amtrak could not agree on a time slot that would allow this trains 45&46 to arrive in Cleveland and a few other cities during the day light. I even remember student engineers on the Pennsylvanian getting their hours in for the Skyline.
