Sun setting on the season. Although summer will not officially end for more than 20 days, Labor Day weekend always feels like the end of something. But the season that I am referring to is the season of construction that has diverted Amtrak Empire Service to Grand Central Terminal from New York’s Penn Station. On Tuesday, September 4, 2018, all trains will once again run to the west side of Manhattan. In the meantime, today I ventured out to see some more of these runs and took a shot of Train 244 (714, P32AC-DM leading on Saturday, September 1, 2018) rolls through the MTA Metro-North Railroad Marble Hill Station at sunset.
An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
