AMTK 642 on Train 137 at Kingston Station
Under the current Amtrak schedule Kingston Station provides a busy hour of train watching starting at about 2:45 pm on weekdays. An Acela passes each way and train 137 stops within 15 minutes and then, about 30 minutes later, train 86 stops, providing 4 trains in 45 or so minutes.
I took advantage of this interval yesterday and was remarkably lucky. This is train 137, which is scheduled out of Providence 1 mintue behind Acela 2169. It was led by the 'Salutes Our Veterans' ACS-64 AMTK 642 yesterday as it arrived in Kingston Station to make its stop and pick up several passengers.
