30th Street StationPhiladelphia, PA
United States

With a mixed freight pulled by boxcab electrics on the highline, a pair of Amtrak GG-1's led by the Savings Bond 921 pull commuters into Philadelphia's 30th Streeet Station.

Though unpleasant for commuters, the 44-day Septa TWU strike from March 25 to May 8, 1977 brought an interesting mix of CR and Amtrak power to 30th Street station.
