Remarks & Notes 
A diesel-hauled Amtrak passenger train is not often seen on this section of the Northeast Corridor. Amtrak Keystone service train 649 apparently developed mechanical issues with motor 605 just east of Linden station earlier in the afternoon. After numerous attempts to resolve the issue, passengers were transferred to at least two other passing trains before a KN-701 crew arrived from Adams Yard with a rescue diesel. Once tied onto the lead cab car, Amtrak GP38H-3 525 (a former GO Transit GP40TC) led the train to Philadelphia. I'm not sure if any passengers remained on board, but it still made for an interesting sight passing through Edison over an hour and a half behind schedule.
