Remarks: Pennsylvania painted E8's with the 5809 leading the Amtrak Special around Horse Shoe Curve during the Altoona Railfest. The first scene the E's head west around the curve heading for Gallitzin where they will turn around and head back to Altoona which is in the 2nd scene.
Nice job. If this was Saturday morning, I was over at the picnic table obscured by the funicular station, catching my breath from climbing the stairs, as the train went by upgrade. I recorded the return trip from the far end of the park. Kudos for making the climb to get that angle!
