…Continued from Private Cars in Portland on October 22, 2009.
The next day, October 23, 2009, New York Central #3 Portland was added to the southbound Coast Starlight.
The car was eventually bound for Bethel, Connecticut via Oakland, Denver, Chicago and New York City's Penn Station.
North Star Rail's #3101 and #202 were coupled to the eastbound Empire Builder, which again made them difficult to photograph. This view of #202 was taken from the Broadway Bridge.
Amtrak P42DC #170 now led the Empire Builder as it departed with North Star Rail #202 and #3101, bound for home in Minnesota.
Their departure finally offered the opportunity for reasonably good photos of the two cars.
GBRX #800224 Goombay Sunrise was the only private passenger car remaining at Union Station, sitting alone on Track 1.
