For over two and a half decades, Amtrak’s F40PH diesel engines pulled passengers between New Haven, CT, and Boston, MA. Starting in the mid-1990’s, decades of false starts to finish electrifying the Northeast Corridor from New Haven to Boston were coming to end as crews began making preparations to electrify the line. The F40PH days of plying these rails were about to come to an end.
In this book, you will find photos of the ubiquitous F40PH pulling passenger trains from various towns and cities along the northern most segment of the Northeast Corridor between New Haven and Boston.
In addition to the chapters on the prototype rail line, there are two chapters about a HO scale layout constructed based on this portion of the Northeast Corridor that captures the final days of Diesels on the Northeast Corridor.
