MORE OF THE BLACKOUT OF 2003

 


Here's a cast of characters if I ever saw one.

L.C., Harry Zabar, Paul Hayhurst and Larry check out our equipment after we made it back Penn Station.
We arrived shortly before 1am.

Harry was the LSA in the Cafe Car on our train and he did an absolutely magnificent job, as did the First Class OBS crew.

These guys were on their feet for 9 hours taking care of the passengers. Because of their excellent work, everyone remained calm.



The Amtrak Police Command Center on duty next to Pennsylvania Station.



By 1 am there were about 30 Boston and New Haven crew members living a nomadic life within the lower levels of Pennsylvania Station, moving from one train to another to stay cool and in some cases, to find food and water.



Ray Fischer spent most of the lost night dreaming about "Clydesdales"
His favorite type of  horsey.
