My roomette inside Amtrak Texas Eagle 21 was on wrong side to record Chicago railyard as we left Union Station. I tried to improvise and originally didn’t get much of this private rail car recorded.
Luckily we got held in yard waiting for signal to proceed. Normally I wait until my ticket is scanned to leave room. But broke that rule – when I saw The Patrón Tequila Express.
I’d never seen car in person. From what I have read – it most likely was on it’s way to Kentucky Derby.
Recorded April 30th 2018 from Texas Eagle 21 Sightseer Lounge ( Observation Car ).
The Patrón Tequila Express is Gulf Mobile & Ohio Railroad Car #50
