HiDef footage of Amtrak Auto Train & CSX in Sanford Florida. On Sunday, November 14, 2,010, my dad and I went to Sanford to catch Amtrak Auto Train and some other trains.
00:00 CSX OUC coal train with GE ES44AH's #846 & #848 departing Sanford Florida south to the power plant after a crew change. Behind the train is the Conrad Yelvington rock plant. In the foreground is where the old Sanford passenger station once stood.
02:40 Amtrak Auto Train PO53 ducks under I-4. PO53 just happened to have engine 53 on the point today! Arrived at 8:45am, quite a bit earlier than the 9:30am posted time.
02:51 Amtrak Auto Train makes it around the mini-forest where tracks for Rand Yard once stood. Rand, once an important yard on the A-Line, is now a shell of its former self.
04:26 Auto Train snakes its way into the terminal. Note the brand new Passenger station which opened in October 2,010. AT had 16 superliners & 24 auto rack cars for a total of 40 cars that day.
08:09 P32BWH switcher no. 504 connects to the auto racks and pulls them into the terminal.
10:31 Amtrak Silver Star lead by engine no. 124 pulls thru Sanford, ontime, about 20 minutes after Auto Train clears the line. Time was about 9:20am.
11:55 Bonus footage of Amtrak Silver Star, PO92 in Taft Florida seen on October 2,010 with Engine 53 again! Those engines hang pretty close on rotation!
