One of the best time to Railfan Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor or NEC,is the Sunday after thanksgiving.This Is due to the fact,that the Railroad has to borrow equipment from New Jersey Transit or NJT and Maryland Area Regional Commuter or MARC.On November-29th-2015,I headed down to Perryville Maryland To film some of the action. I was successful on this date, filming Both the Marc’s Bombarider Transportation HHP-8s and NJT’S Arrow 3 cars made appearances. Amtrak put on a show of their own with the usual Acela’s,and ACS-64s.We also got 642 the Amtrak Veteran’s ACS-64 as well. Unfortunately We weren’t able to see any AEM-7s,but we also visited the CSX Philadelphia Subdivision or Philly sub and were able to film two eastbound CSX trains at a new spot for us.Jackson Station Road Bak 54.5 We started out the Morning at the Perryville Station.As a eastbound Acela rolled by.
