Amtrak HHP-8 speeding through Attleboro MA
The Bombardier HHP-8 electrics, cousins to the Acela power cars, spent only 10 years hauling NE Regional trains (#135 here) up and down the NE Corridor before they were retired in the 2014 as unreliable (and became subject of a $93M lawsuit between Amtrak and its lessor partners who sued for breach of contract that was to run to 2022). My then 14 year old son took this photo.
