I had a great time today at Grand Central Terminal’s Parade of Trains. Even with all the setbacks (I’ll explain later), I still had a great time. And I’d go again if my Architecture Studio final wasn’t due in less that 5 days.
However, I’m really, really tired. So I’ll upload the photos I took today in the morning.
But, I’ll leave all of you a little teaser…
Happy National Train Day everyone!
Today I was photographing some of my architecture schoolwork for my portfolio. This required me to borrow my brother’s tripod and lamp, and also required a backdrop to be set up…
Because I already had everything set up after I finished photographing my work, I figured why not try photographing some of my model railway equipment. So look for for those photos later tomorrow, er, later today…
Came across this lovely photo this while on reddit. Knew I had to share it here.
This one’s for you, Mr. Coalsmoke!
This is NJT Train #1213, which terminates at Waldwick. It leaves Hoboken at 05:13pm, which is 1 minute before my train leaves. Often, we “race” it to Secaucus Junction, and we normally overtake it.
I took this just as we left Secaucus, so I fumbled getting my camera out of my bag…
MTA-branded EMD GP40FH-2 No. 4903
As we left Hoboken Yard, an inbound train with EMD GP40PH-2 4109 as motive power passed us.
Had to sit backwards on the seat to catch this shot…

Leaving Hoboken. It was a dreary wet afternoon. You can usually see the Lower Manhattan and 1 WTC on a good day.

On my train. Waiting to depart from Hoboken Terminal
Erie Lackawanna Alco C425 locomotive # 2452, leads another C425 and an EMD SD45, while hauling a mixed merchandise freight train along the mainline at Central Valley, New York, 04-07-1970 by alcomike43 on Flickr.
Oh hey it’s one of the neighboring towns from where I’m from!
And look at the lack of trees growing alongside the right of way! I almost didn’t notice this photo without reading the title…
You asked for a Norfolk Southern locomotive and you shall receive.
Sorry about the terrible shot. I was on a moving train when I took it. Anyway, Norfolk Southern GP38-2 No. 5612…
This to all of you railfans out there in Tumblr-land. Without you guys, I really wouldn’t have a reason to be here liking and reblogging all your pictures! I wish you all dry rails and a full head of steam!
