Although they're not green anymore, I was surprised to
see several sets of the 1100 series ACMUs sitting at
Harmon. Not in storage, but mixed in with the MU sets
laying over for the weekend. I seem to recall about a
year ago there demise was predicted any day.
I have a special fondness for these cars, as they were
what I most rode on in my youth. (Along with the 1000
series.) I haven't ridden on one in many years,
though. Most of my trips now start north of Harmon, so
I'm usually in a loco-hauled train. Also, I think the
ACMUs are only used at peak hours, and perhaps on
shorter runs, such as trains originating at
I wonder how much longer these old warhorses will
last? They're something like 37 years old now.
