"Commuting At It's Peak"
A local service with a Budd M3 is being caught by another service lead by a DE30. It is the making of a hot hazy day in the city.
The rush hour! LIRR style. Every type of passenger equipment in use on the LIRR can be seen here, M7, DE30 and WAY in the distance an M3.
The workhorse of the "route of the dashing commuter" is the Bombardier M7, seen flying through Forest Hills.
The Cannonball which is the only named train on the LIRR whisks people away from the city for a weekend escape on eastern Long Island. This is a Fri & Sun summer only service.
Old Budd M3's hustle people toward New York Penn as they have for decades. These cars are due to be retired in the next year or so, as the first M9's have arrived for testing.
Arrow III's whistle through. This station is due to be rebuilt in the years ahead. The Arrows are slated for retirement.
Action at Elizabeth! An Arrow III makes a stop as another service passes by southbound. The iconic Arrow III's that ran next to GG1's are slated for retirement.
The New Haven lives! The NH heritage livery appears on a number of locomotives on commuter lines in the northeast.
An older set of Budd M3A's slowly work their place in line on a busy morning. Time is running out on these old EMU's at the M9's are coming to replace them.
There are 5 trains in this photo, a demonstration on how busy this place can be. The 5th train is just visible waiting to get into Park Ave Tunnel.
An Arrow set departs Hoboken Terminal for the Gladstone Branch. The Arrow III's are in their sunset years on NJT.
A set of Metro North M3As stop at the Philipse Manor station.

Pretty much any day of the week you can find all four tracks occupied here, in this case #6535 races with #9336 into Grand Central with one up at 125th Street (along with an MOW move).
