We caught two Amtrak test runs past MP294 West Newton, PA on the CSX (ex-B&O) Pittsburgh sub in 1993. The 1st clip was the tilt train, on July 22, 1993, with two Amtrak F40's units shoving the train east bound on the west bound main. The second clip was the ICE train with two specially painted F69PHAC's 450-451 leading west bound on August 23, 1993. Neither train proved to be a sucsess. Thanks for watching. Jackmp294

Why...didn't...we...adopt these?! Don't get me wrong, I like the Genesis because of their design, but why didn't we adopt these? An actual tilt train?! Come on! But no, we had to wait almost 20 years for Amtrak to even consider getting one.

The X2000 horn, though VERY high pitched, plays quite a pretty chord. Thanks for posting
