Taken 6/2/10.

ALP-46A 4629 doubleheaded (MUed) with MAN, the propulsion totally caught me off guard (It kind of resembles the tri-tone ALSTOM propulsion found on the R160's in the city). Also, you can't see it, but apparently Siemens had a hand in the truck design, since Bomb/SIE was on the truck plate. And the double loco acceleration, GREAT!!

 

In addition to the 46A IGBT propulsion, you can hear the GTO based propulsion on ALP-46 4601. If you listen carefully, you can hear the phase change toward the end of the video.

 

NOTE: sorry about the talking, I usually don't say anything in my vids, but I decided to make the exception here.

Hey, I got a video of it too! Caught it also on M&E Train 665 departing Newark Broad Street.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think you have a better video of the takeoff though because you were able to pick up the spund from the trucks better (and plus I didn't face the loco at first). The propulsion sounds is the ULTIMATE!! Definitely my new favorite electric locomotives.

oh, and if you want to catch this loco, then here's the operating schedule, every wednesday and friday.

The first ALP-46a will enter revenue service tomorrow (6/2). Look for the 4629 to be double-headed (or MU'ed for you Newark guys) with another engine and outfit on trains 602, 303, 306, 261, 254, and 665.

If you like that, then check this out, it's not exactly the same, but it works :):

 

 

Oh no, I'm finished! I can only imagine the symphony at New Brunswick when I move back down there.

Are those the new disel/catenary operated locomotives?

No. Those are the ALP-45DPs you're thinking about. NJT is not even due for one til next year.

 

The ALP-46As are more powerful versions of the ALP-46s.

Well, it's Wednesday, and she's supposedly running again, so look for the one stop video from me tonight at like...10ish... :cool::P

I'll probably try to go get her again too if the rain lets up for the first trip in the PM.
