Amtrak Says Farewell to Iconic Northeast Corridor Locomotives

Published on : Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Amtrak logoAmtrak will soon say goodbye to the venerable AEM-7 electric locomotives that have carried passengers between Washington, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Harrisburg and everywhere in between for 37 years and over 220 million miles.

 

Together with the Acela Express, AEM-7s have built on the legacies of the Pennsylvania and New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroads as the Northeast Corridor has expanded into the 21st century.

 

On Saturday, June 18, 2016, Amtrak will salute these remarkable machines with a special Farewell to the AEM-7 excursion trip available to the public.

 

The AEM-7 excursion train will depart from Washington Union Station en route to Philadelphia, where the train will reverse direction and head for a unique visit and tour of Wilmington Shops in Delaware, the maintenance home of the AEM-7. The train will then return to Washington.
