Amtrak’s north bound Crescent kicks up swirls of snow as it blasts through Bowie, MD on the Northeast Corridor following a major snowstorm in January 1983. Leading the Crescent is EMD AEM-7 No. 919, which was delivered to Amtrak in 1980. The 7,000 HP AEM-7s were reliable and powerful electrics. After over 30 years of service they were retired in 2014.
