A battered Metroliner snack-bar coach rips over the East Bel Air Avenue crossing at 100+ mph, on its way to DC. Lead car No. 852 was one of twenty 60-seat snack-bar coaches built by GE as PRR Class MPC85E5. It weighed in at 83 tons and was equipped with four GE 1254A1 traction motors (255 HP each, or 1020 HP per car.) Note the odd Tomlinson coupler, by Ohio Brass. Also of note are the two Leslie single-chime horns, barely visible above the headlights, Type S55 and S37, which emitted a high-pitched, but not unpleasant blast, when operating properly. (To hear, check out boboperafan on YouTube.) Many of these cars (in the 76-seat coach version) still survive, nearly 50 years later, as cab control cars. One snack-bar coach is preserved in its mostly original condition (No. 860) at Strasburg, Pa.
