Remarks & Notes 
Here is the prime mover of FL9 2006, originally New Haven 2026. This prime mover was the powerhouse of many trains bringing thousands of tired commuters to and from work for decades. 2006 currently resides at the Danbury Railway museum stagnant, with its fate looking dim. I hope to see 2006 running under the New Haven catenary one day in the not so distant future.

Generally speaking, shots where less than a full engine is shown. But I want to feature details, not half engines or full cabs, and definitely not full nose shots. Just shots where someone has zoomed in with purpose.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
