97 making its usual weekend schedule afternoon crossing into New Bern. This was as low as I could possibly hold my camera without it getting into the water.
P98 stretches out into the street running while breaking up their abnormally big inbound train. While the street running by this time of day (about 7 in the evening) is entirely sidelit, it still ... (more)
Much to my delight, P97 has been using a Thoroughbred Dash 9 pair as of late. As soon as I saw that it was going to be a sunny day on Saturday, I knew I had to go see them arriving into town. Here... (more)
Loaded unit phosphate train 60U enters NB in perfect lighting over the bridge. The 2 big AC units made easy work of moving this 80+ car train over the gap.
P98 works the New Bern yard in some gorgeous golden light with none other than Pennsylvania heritage unit #8102. Rodney Kantorski's screaming was definitely a thought in my mind while I was shooti... (more)
P29 coasts down the street running with nothing but AC44C6M #4071.
A close up view of NS SD70ACC #1838 resting in the yard. Its right side is particularly grimy.
P97 skirts down the street running to pull out its cut of cars from the yard. Thoroughbred Dash 9s have been a classic sight here for the past 2 and a half decades, and hopefully will last a littl... (more)
The street running in downtown New Bern is a major attraction for railfans nationwide. Hancock Street, the road the tracks rest upon, are lined with banners displaying the town name and its bear t... (more)
TOP21 strikes again. P98 is now a Selma to New Bern turn and P97 is a Chocowinity to New Bern turn. All cars between Selma and Choco (90% of it being to and from PCS Phosphate) now go to the yard ... (more)
A pair of the ugliest road locomotives in history lead a much more eye-pleasing ET44 on P98 as it works the yard.
One of NS's horrid, hideous, and repulsive SD60Es leads P97 into the yard. A nice treat was the Virginian heritage unit trailing second out.
A new symbol around here due to TOP21, NS P98 (formerly E49) pulls into the yard. On the south track is a camp train, and the derails guarding it perfectly frame P98.
A Herzog train pulls out into the street running. This train had quite an interesting lashup, consisting of a 3 month old SD70ACe, 41 year old GP40-2, and an AC44C6M.
Due to the train being quite long, E49 swings around the curve in front of the old Southern Railroad passenger station at the beginning of the downtown street running. It was switching the yard, w... (more)
