Another RI Gem - Guess what this train is

Post by Tadman »

Take a good look at the consist and location before reading the caption info. I was quite puzzled. You can see 5+ baggage cars, some red P-S single-level commuter cars, stainless Rocket P-S cars, and something dark green and heavyweight at the end. My first thought was hospital move to Silvis, but that's not it.
