Amtrak's Corridor Clipper Inspection Car visits Cape Cod

On March 18, 1999, Amtrak's Corridor Clipper track geometry/inspection car made an appearance on the Cape, testing the tracks to Hyannis.  This car measures track geometry including low joints, rail elevation, curvature, etc. (and in electrified territory the dummy pantograph on top can measure for catenary inconsistencies).  The car was sandwiched between MBTA F40 1035 and MBTA control car 1512.  Click on any of the thumbnails below to view the full size file in a new window.

The Corridor Clipper returns!  On July 29, 2007, this car made another appearance on Cape Cod. Click here for photos.
