Random NJT rail photos from july 2nd! (56k warning)

Recommended Posts

Here's some photos of (NJT) stuff from july 2nd. I am going to include 2 shots of platform & an alp-44 as viewed from inside an amtrak train here, because they highlight (NJT) not amtrak.

Thanks!

 

(NJT) history & operations is really interesting. Most of NJ is actually open, forrest, and farmland, and of course beach!. A lot is spread out & far apart, which is why (NJT) rail is a no-brainer for getting people places. I'd start with a trip to trenton, then a trip to bay head, then a trip to hackettstown. Hackettstown is really nice. It is also global HQ for M&M mars company. If you get a chance also check out princeton & its little ole line. The princeton branch actually used to have more stations, as with all of the current & future (NJT) rail lines. Researching the history really connects the beginning of rail into the future & reactivation of lines etc. Pretty amazing stuff.

You think the last photo was a hybrid coupler for moving disabled EMU?

Very nice shots! I really like the third one.

 

Thank you!

 

It's always a craps shoot to end up across from where the locomotive stops because some trains are in push mode, some in pull mode, and the train lengths very a lot. I'm glad i finally got a full side shot of the ALP-46. My favorite shot of an ALP-46 however is one i've been using for my desktop for 2 months......
