Seaboard Coast Line ABA Lash UP, RF&P Tr. 91, The Champion  Contributor's Pick!       
Taken from L'Enfant Plaza. This Florida-bound train is about 5 min. out of Washington Union Station. It has gone through the First Street Tunnel behind the Capitol for a few city blocks, is now headed west on ex-PRR tracks (with catenary), but is about to turn south again to cross the Potomac River and acquire RF&P tracks. It's 5 days before Amtrak Day and the Champion will be history.
