Why travel for miles or go to Summit to railfan when you can do it right down the road from your HS. Enjoy!

I was just really fascinated by this old fashioned pickup truck parked at my HS:

Wow, wooden cat towers.

 

Nice shots, next time use the outdoor setting though, i think you had it set for indoor. Also.... never point a camera at the sun!

 

Wood ties & towers, its like the milwaukee road!

Unfortunately, NJT plans to replace all wooden catenary poles with metal poles. The Gladstone branch is the only line in the continent to still have wooden catenary poles. It's a classic! In addition, I really enjoy the fact that DL&W built their catenary with constant tension catenary on the wooden poles in comparison to the PRR loose catenary.

 

The shots weren't in night mode, rather I mistakenly switched the camera to red eye reduction flash.
