Dover Harbor can be seen in this YouTube video southbound on Amtrak train #68, the Adirondack at Cantic, QC, en route to New York on a charter on October 11, 2011.  This was a charter move operated by DCNRHS between New York and Montreal for a client.  The locomotive is a unit especialy painted in an Amtrak Heritage Scheme for Amtrak's 40th Anniversary.  The dome behind it is a former Great Northern Dome that Amtrak uses for special opportunities on this and other trains, in this case to view the beautiful fall colors along the route.   The 2nd to last car, the Mohave, is a 1955 Santa Fe car that was part of our charter.
DCNRHS charters out Dover Harbor to help pay for the maintenance and upkeep of our historic  Pullman.  7 volunteers helped staff the trip, and in return got a beautiful train ride and to sleep and eat aboard.
