At the east switch of Leyden, the eastbound California Zephyr is on the roll with two special Amfleet cars on the end. The first car is AMTK 10001, named Beech Grove and is an Amtrak Business Car. The second car is AMTK 10002, named Corridor Clipper and is an Amtrak Track Geometry Car. This car tests the rails and is capable of accurately testing the rails at speeds up to 135 MPH (which it regularly does along the Northeast Corridor).
