Oddly enough, these all come from the last few days.

 

02+P32DM+201+at+Southeast.jpg

P32DM 201 at Southeast station

 

04+BL20GH+127+at+Dykemans+2.jpg

BL20GH 127 at Dykemans. Dykemans is the site of a former NY Central station and is just north of the Southeast station.

 

06+BL20GH+127+at+Towners+2.jpg

 

Same BL20 at Towners. That's the Beacon line crossing overhead, unused but owned by MN

 

04+P40+838+at+Waterbury+4.jpg

Amtrak P40 at Waterbury, facing south for a change. Better for us railfans!

 

25+MN+2014+on+Danbury+Branch+in+SoNo+2.jpg

FL-9 2014 just left the New Haven main and is on the Danbury branch. There is still catenary about a mile up this line, a far cry from when the entire line was electric back in the 50's.

 

21+MN+F10+411+_amp_+413+at+Merrit+7+2.jpg

F10's 411 & 413 that ran on the Danbury shuttle all weekend, shot taken at Merrit 7 station. I have a lot of these that I'll post a little later.

 

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!

Great pictures Jack, especially the F10's! Since they have not been so scarce lately on the Danbury line, I get to ride home with them every day! B)

 

Question: Have not looked, do the F10's have third rail shoes?

Thanks for the kind words everybody!

 

Stamford516Guy, both the F10's and the FL-9's have had their 3rd rail shoes removed for a few years now
