Hello Everyone,

 

I was at Hoboken Terminal today and took some photos.

 

 

Here are the photos.

You caught some really neat stuff (E)! Nice shots!

 

I've been hunting for 4103 for months. Seems its placard was replaced on one side. Was that the one that had the run-in with the tree?

Gr8 stuff, and what in the world is a MNR train doing in a NJT Term, is it about West Hudson service, ;)!

 

NJ Transit has a fleet of 10 locomotives painted for Metro-North for the West Of Hudson Service. The fleet consists of 4 F40PH-2CAT locomotives #4191-4194, 5 GP40FH-2 locomotives #4900-4905, and one GP40PH-2 locomotive #4906. They are essentially NJ Transit locomotives but are painted for Metro-North to show the pool agreement with MNCR to share the routes to Port Jervis, Suffern, and Spring Valley NY because once you get out of NJ those routes are automatically owned by Metro-North just by virtue of the fact that the routes are in New York State.

Norfolk Southern owns the old Erie Mainline north of Suffern, and the trackage is leased to Metro North, with MN owning the stations north of, but not including, Suffern. NJT owns the entire Pascack Valley Line, including the portion in New York State. MN owns the Spring Valley station, while NJT owns Nanuet and Pearl River.

I really like those rebuilt work engines. You can see a really modern design that reflects the needs and developments that have unfolded since the 60's. Big deck in front of the cab, sloped short hood, much more visibility vs the other stuff they use, lack of wide radiators increase clearances for people, big easy to access air intake, and more refined walkways & deck around the rest of the loco with high visibility railing and striking paint scheme.
