According to Wikipedia, Prison Break was a TV series that ran for a few seasons. I vaguely remember it but never watched it. Maybe another member was a fan and can help you.

Although the Number was wrong, it had the Big A N Lettering on the side of the Engine in the railpictures.net Picture , which absolutely Confirms that they used AMTRAK Engines, maybe they used more than one engine or else maybe the the Engine Number was Changed.

I'm a new member to these Forums, so I'm kind of poking around when I try to ask questions or post messages. Therefore I hope you can see my Reply ! Thank You very much for Helping me confirm that the Engine I saw in Lake Wales, Florida was in fact used used in the TV Series !

Now I can Update my Photograph on flickr™ !
