NEC,RVL and some ACES from this weekend

Recommended Posts

I forgot to share some photos from the RVL I took this past Friday so I will include them with the shots I took today along the NEC after finding out that Browns Yard would not have anything new until the afternoon. I'll share those as well...don't worry. As usual this will be NJT related with a separate thread for the Amtrak stuff. Like I said if it was one or two photos I would just post them but I have alot to share so its all linked.

 

 

RVL and Lehigh Line:

 

Started out with a Raritan bound set lead by 4032:

Thanks, ACES is a pain to catch there are times where it will pass another train right in front of me and I have to set to another angle quick, otherwise I miss it.

I think that's accidentally on purpose. The timing blocks that they use to space the trains tend to work against railfans, however from time to time you get the perfect situation. :cool:

 

Sitting for hours, sometimes overnight, at certain stations has taught me this.
