Recommended Posts

My first stop on Thursday was to catch whatever was coming out of Sunnyside toward NY Penn at Hunterspoint and Hunters Point. Here is what I saw:

Looks like an Empire Service train being put into service.

Another put-in. HHP-8 654 with an assortment of sleepers, coaches, etc.

Great photos Fred! It seems theres quite a few Metro-North M7s at Arch Street....usually its 2 or 4 cars, I see about 6.

Shot of a lifetime is getting them on Hells Gate. :)

Thanks, Zach, and it sure does look like no extra room.

Thanks, Pablo; that's the most cars I've ever seen there and I'd love to catch them going across the Hell Gate or anywhere in Queens.

Thanks Andy, and I'm sure the GG-1's used that very tunnel

 

Nice photos!!

 

Thanks!

 

Haha! Now that would be a photo!

 

Real Nice! Why is the to exposed on those engines?

 

Dunno but that's a normal arrangment for all electric Amtrak locomotives.

 

Excellent Amtrak pics!
