FROM BLW and ZosaTrains ... THE BLW/ZT Amtrak Heritage SouthEast set !

This set features the Amtrak Silver Meteor and Silver Star as they would have
appeared in the early 1970s. The set also includes Washington Union Passenger Terminal Alco RS1s


The Silver Meteor was originally a train of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad (SAL),
placed in service on February 2, 1939. The train was operated between New York, NY,
and Washington, DC, by the Pennsylvania Railroad under a haulage agreement. Between Washington
and Richmond, it used the tracks of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad,
jointly owned by the SAL and five other railroads for the use of all. From Richmond south,
the SAL's own trackage was used, running via Raleigh, North Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina,
Savannah, Georgia, Jacksonville, Florida and Ocala, Florida. Until the late 1960s, the Silver Meteor split at Wildwood,
Florida, with one section continuing to Miami, Florida, and the other serving St. Petersburg
and Sarasota-Venice on Florida's west coast.

The SAL merged with the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad to form the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad in 1967,
and on May 28, 1968 the Silver Meteor began serving only Miami (the similarly-routed Silver Star
then served only St. Petersburg). Amtrak continued to operate the Silver Meteor when it took
over operations on May 1, 1971; on November 14, the numbers 83 (southbound) and 84 (northbound) were assigned.

The Silver Star was originally a service of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, running from New York to
Miami and later also St. Petersburg (beyond Tampa). It was inaugurated December 12, 1947
to replace the Advance Silver Meteor.

The Silver Meteor shares much of its track with the Silver Star, which runs further west through
North Carolina and South Carolina and detours to serve Tampa, Florida. The Palmetto uses the
same tracks as the Silver Meteor for its whole length, terminating in Savannah, Georgia.
