Once we knew this guy was headed east, we scrambled up to the top of Crozier Canyon for this view.
After a lot of waiting in Afton Canyon we were greeted with this eastbound vehicle train with three new GEVO's in the consist.
Rare GP-9 leader awaits a new crew at East Salamanca station
Two bridges, two trains. NS 11J and NS 13G paralleled their way west under the Westinghouse Bridge and the Triboro Expressway under a weird combination of moon, clouds, and snow.
An eastbound rack train streaks through the Christmas lights in peaceful West Newton, PA at about 1:30am.
With a beautiful day on the Pacific coast and 17 minutes on the parking meter I was able to snag this shot in between family-friendly activities!
An Ex-UP SD40-2 leads the hotshot 101 train along an inlet in St. Augustine
A light helper heads east to assist a westbound out of Altoona. Lights provided by Gallitzin Tunnels Park during their Railfest-weekend slide show.
A GP40-3 rebuild freshly painted and shopped at Bowden Yard.
The 101 heads south with three nice blue units with the hurricane logo.
An SD80MAC and SD50 await service at Cresson. Wade Massie shot the same units 12 hours earlier (see image 120419).
The AVR switches the Bellefield Boiler House on its way south/east to Glenwood. Note the lightning above the Carnegie Mellon Univ buildings in the background.
Many of the crossing flashers were not yet in service, requiring the AVR crew to flag each crossing. If not for this practice we would not have been able to chase this job.
Train 101 heads south out of Bowden with three ex-UP six-axles. Apparently FEC will be purchasing 6 SD70M-2's; it will be interesting to see what colors they end up in.
Engineer Dave Shelley is at the throttle of FEC 107, with Flagler College in the background. Flagler College was originally a hotel built by the FEC's founder, Henry Flagler.
