It is too bad the DL&W did not make the Phoebe Snow like the Denver Zephyr with low domes. A flat ended palour-observation-dome car would have been great in the Poconos or on Dansville Hill in Western NY. Or with seachlights on the roof of the Westerner. Lackawanna Lance

Well, almost. But the tracks beyond 18 never had wire, and Hoboken Terminal is
one of the really now clearance areas.

Probably into the same few tracks that Amtrak's all-Superliner Capitol Limited
uses today, where the wire was raised to provide extra clearance.

No electrification out there...
