Liberty Limited

February 5, 2011

The rail fan community deserves respect for a spirit of generosity at times. This picture, posted on the website of the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, marks the passing of “The Liberty Limited” organized to take wounded veterans to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia. Here the train is passing Norwood Station headed by Bennett Levin’s E8 units, 5711 and 5809. There are additional pictures and a video here. The locomotives hauled 19 private rail cars. Quite a sight!
