Then we pick up back on the LEHL on Friday in South PLainfield with 11J with a UP unit trailing, sorry its a little blurry but as you can see the rain was bad and also I had left a filter on from my shoot on Wed:

Nice! Lot of diverse power!

 

Was that 5000 unit still with the 6000 hp, or was it 4400 hp? I know some were rebuilt.

 

I like the wave the engineer is giving you! :cool: :(

 

I wish there was more frequent freight closer to my house, closest is the trenton line over in yardley. You should come down this way some time, they have stuff parked just before the woodbourne station often, and you got :septa: too every hour. There is a secondary siding line near that line as well, within walking distance.

Thanks Andy!

 

Yes it still has 6000hp it was rebuilt though to GEVO standards from what I was told.

 

I like the Trenton line! Shoot it in West Trenton & Hopewell along with the old station in Belle Meade and once in Langhorne where the freight line splits.

Yea, it's an interesting area, mix of former (and current) commuter and freight lines. I wonder every time i pass under the reading viaduct what would have happened if the NP&NYRR got a bridge across, and what would happen if the low grade bridge was completed.

 

How heavy was the train 5000 was on you think? (& how many cars) I think the GEVO spec is new headers and tier 3 emissions standards, different fuel injection and some other stuff too. Exhaust gas recirculation helps a great deal in reducing emissions. :tup:

Q 190 is generally a short train don't know how many axles it had but this one was larger than the ones I had seen previously in the past month. However i don't think this engine was really warranted for this train. MAybe that last picture of Q439 could have used that fella though he was long!
