Months back, I saw somewhere that there was going to be a special train consisting of private cars running on the NEC between PHL and NYP on Sun 10/30. Is that still going to happen?

From http://luxrailtravel.com/events/
We will be leaving Philadelphia's 30th St. Station at 3:05 pm on October 30, 2016 and heading for New York's Penn Station along Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. We will be on the rear end of Amtrak's Pennsylvanian as we roll at speeds up to 90mph through suburban Pennsylvania and New Jersey before plunging under the Hudson River and into Penn Station at approximately 4:50 pm.
Does this car really have such a low speed restriction? Is there going to be switching at Pittsburgh or Philadelphia so that the "Alexander Hamilton" will be on the rear going into New York? Will the observation end be facing to the rear?

Jim,
I saw a photo of The Pennsylvanian through Elizabeth, PA yesterday. The "Alexander Hamilton" was indeed trailing with the observation end at the very rear of the train.
Can't speak much for the speed restrictions of that particular car, but when they passed me in New Brunswick on the Northeast Corridor, the train seemed to be at its usual speed.

Tuesday's train 42 Pennsylvanian had Ohio Central Sugar Creek on the rear arriving from Pittsburgh.
Departing for New York, Sugarcreek was behind the motor.
