Maintaining an Amfleet coach, 2010.

In this image, two massive hydraulic jacks elevate an 85-foot long Amfleet coach at the Bear Heavy Maintenance Facility in Delaware so that work can be performed on the undercarriage and suspension system. Employees at the Bear car shops are primarily responsible for the overhaul and wreck repair of Amfleet I and II cars, as well as the overhaul of maintenance-of-way equipment and rolling stock.

This image is one of a set entitled "A Day in the Life of Amtrak" completed for the Amtrak 40th Anniversary celebration.
