4 Hours @ Elizabeth, Thanksgiving Sunday 2015 w/ Commuter Extras

Recommended Posts


 

Welcome to Thanksgiving Sunday @ Broad Street - Elizabeth. Most of the action between 9:45 AM and 2:00 PM is captured here, including two of the Commuter Rail Set Northeast Regional Holiday Extras. I chose this spot specifically because of the MAS change of 110/65-55 coming into and out of the S-curve. Eastbound trains throttle up at the east end of the station, so you can clearly hear the locomotives working hard to accelerate their trains out of the 65 mph restriction. Enjoy =)
