Amtrak's United Aircraft "TurboTrain" rusts at Ivy City
Title:  Amtrak's United Aircraft "TurboTrain" rusts at Ivy City
Description:  Early in 1978, while on a business trip to Washington, DC, CKF took this Tri-X Pan exposure from a northbound Amtrak. It is of a recently retired TurboTrain (#57). Originally ordered by Montreal Locomotive Works for Canadian National in 1966 (delivered 1971?), this was one of two train sets cobbled together of leftover CN sets in 1973 for Amtrak (to compliment the sets they already owned). It ran in Boston to New York service and was powered by United Aircraft (Sikorsky) gas-turbine engines.
