Rebuilt Turboliner
Title:  Rebuilt Turboliner
Description:  My little brother stands next to the Turboliner minutes after we arrived at the Albany/Rensselaer station aboard this train. Little did I know at the time this would be my last trip aboard this unique equipment, as it was withdrawn without warning in early 2004 due to disputes between Amtrak and NYDOT over air conditioning issues and high operating costs.

Rebuilt Turboliners
Title:  Rebuilt Turboliners
Description:  After riding the rebuilt Turboliner up to Rensselaer, I found the other two completed RTL III sets at the nearby maintenance facility. The trainset in front was the third to be completed, and never ran an inch in revenue service. These trains currently reside in Bear, DE following a protracted legal battle between Amtrak and the state of New York.
