The Inn Crowd

posted Jun 5, 2016, 2:17 PM by James Lilly
June 4 and 5 the Virginia Museum of Transportation is using all three pieces of the Chapter's Amtrak qualified equipment in the 611 trips at Manassas.   The Dover Harbor, which has been with the 611 all spring,  has the honor of being the rear car, aka "bringing up the markers."  Our two coaches, Franklin Inn and Collinsville Inn, were added recently to the consist. They were picked up from Amtrak in Lynchburg, on Wednesday June 1st. 

The photo shows both our cars in Lynchburg on May 28th after being escorted there by Chapter Volunteers over two days behind Amtrak Regional Train No. 171. The photo is by Garland Harper. 

The link below  also shows a series of photos by Garland of the 611 picking up the Inn cars and some others... http://throbbingunits.rrpicturearchives.net/archiveThumbs.aspx?id=116325
