Walking through the Amtrak concourse at the rathole Penn Station this morning, I came upon the gaggle of British Transport Police (BTP), still decked out in the traditional Bobby’s helmets and all, who were last seen in Philly on Tuesday. After checking out Dunkin’ Donuts at Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, maybe they came up to New York to check out Krispy Kreme? I’m kidding. I did not see them stop by the Krispy Kreme store in the Amtrak Rotunda. But when I left, they were heading in that direction…

Actually, their Late Winter 09 Tour schedule was published in a couple news articles on Tuesday about the exchange program with Amtrak Police, but I didn’t notice them. So it’s a good thing I was running a few minute late today!

Here are the photos that I took. Note: I was thankfully not arrested for taking these photos 🙂
