A salute to summer... Amtrak's westbound Cardinal No. 51 spans the New River at Hawks Nest on its way to Chicago from New York City on Labor Day Weekend. The train has nearly completed its run through the New River Gorge of southern West Virginia along CSX's former Chesapeake & Ohio mainline.
The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
