AMTRAK's Carolinian


Recommended Posts

Took Amtrak from Charlotte to New York last week. Of course, I brought my ETrex. Clocked the disel top speed at 81.3 MPH and the electric (switched in DC to electric engine) at 115 MPH. Batteries ran out halfway, but the trip took 15.5 hours. I marked each station we stopped at. I couldn't get out to triangulate, but I wasn't exactly going for accuracy.


Lowest elevation was in DC (-5 ft){could be wrong, this is where the batteries died}, highest was in Burlington (856 ft). We made a total of 27 stops.
