Remarks & Notes 
A stretch of subzero weather in January 1984 left Amtrak's trouble-prone SPV-2000 railcars unable to propel themselves, so diesels including veteran RS-3s were drafted to keep things moving. Amtrak RS-3 138 paused with a Springfield-New Haven train at Berlin, CT, with a pair of crippled SPVs in tow.
