Metro North F40PH-C3 #4908 has seen a lot of miles since it came off the EMD assembly line in 1981 and went into service for Amtrak. The 4908 is seen here hustling across Hollywood Avenue in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ with a train bound for Port Jervis, NY. At this point the train is on New Jersey Transit rails. The transition to Metro-North will occur at Suffern, a few miles to the north.
Today the 4908 is running on borrowed time as NJT has exercised its option for more dual-power locomotives that may ultimately displace all the old units such as these.
