A work train this past saturday paid Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue a quick visit.

 

 

Enjoy!

Sort of an "artsy" approach

If I vote you for president would you promise to stop posting such good pictures?

What is the purpose of that "sensitive rolling test is required upon leaving this location" sign?

Wow, I really like number 3!. Also, a sensitive rolling test is when the T/O leaves the terminal and tests to see if any of the brakes are sticking. What is done is the T/O releases the breaks and puts the master controller in switching till the train is moving at about 3MPH. Then the controller is turned off and the train costs to see if it rolls free. If it does, the train is good to go.

Nice pics. Work trains are nice catches, though I never seem to have my camera with me when one rolls by.

Thanks! That 3rd one is a favorite of mine also.

 

Nice pics! That third one is beast.
Thanks! I was going to take that third one with an R68 or an R160 coming in, but then saw that work train coming and had to take the pic. Good thing it was coming into Track 2.
