Default Amtrak from DC to Philly

Hey... if I'm asking too many questions, somebody PLEASE just tell me to shut up, ok?

This time, I'm curious about a trip I took a couple years ago, before I became interested in trains. It was in 2001, and I rode from Union Station, in DC, to the big station (Penn?) in Philadelphia.

I'm curious what the train might have looked like. Would the train have been like this one, led by an ASEA AEM-7?:

Also, on that engine, do those little "arms" that track on the overhead wires supply electricity to propel the train? If not, what are they?

Thanks again!
