CRHS Excursion info - June 16

Postby rswinnerton » Wed May 30, 2012 12:25 pm

Just an FYI- on June 16, the CRHS special train 'Susquehanna Limited' will depart Wahington DC bound for Harrisburg PA via the Port Road. The train will briefly stop in Enola Yard for food service to be loaded and then cross the river on Rockville Bridge and return to Washington via the Roy Branch to Columbia and again on the Port Road. The consist will be:
2 PRR E8s
1 Amtrak Genesis
11 Amfleet coache
2 Amfleet Cafe cars
Kitchi Gammi Club
Warrior Ridge
Little Juniata Rapids
PRR 120

The train is planned to leave from Washington at 0800 and has sold to capacity.

The CRHS is interested in photo submission for an upcoming issue of Conrail Quarterly magazine and for future trip websites and printed material.

Thank You,

The departure was delayed by one hour because of a bad-ordered Amfleet car that had to be cut out and replaced (because every seat on the train was sold).
It was a great trip, from beginning to end.

Glad you guys enjoyed it. Look for another in 2013 on all new (for us, anyway) routing that is VERY rare mileage. I'll post more info when it's locked in.

On the next excursion, it would be nice if the starting point is Philadelphia.

I just read on their facebook in a long post about their future plans that the 2013 excursion will start in Philadelphia and feature rare mileage! Just have to keep watching their page and site for further info.
