A locomotive’s-eye view up the East Coast

GE, the maker of most of the locomotives in use today on North American railroads (freight and passenger), produced this high-quality short film from cameras mounted to the front of one of its newest Evolution Series locomotives as it pulls CSX’s Juice Train – containing 550,000 gallons of Tropicana orange juice – from Bradenton, Florida to Jersey City, New Jersey: a 1,220-mile overnight journey condensed into 156 seconds. Much of this is the same route that Amtrak’s overnight New York-Florida trains use.
