I get tired of photographing trains in New Jersey sometimes, so yesterday I decided since it was a gorgeous day to head on down to R7 land, and photograph the NEC down there. Here are the Amtrak photos, will post SEPTA stuff in SEPTA forum. Also included in here is the stuff I shot while waiting for NJT in Trenton.

Nice pics!

 

Thank you!

You caught the loco and one of the single silverliner units!

 

- A

 

Thank you!

 

I know! I saw the Silverliner coming and heard a noise coming from track 2 and then saw the Acela rounding the curve, I started praying the shot would come out at that point! Luckily it did :cool:.

As of now I'm shoot with a Nikon E8700 until I decide on my new DSLR. I'm picky about camera's so its been an ongoing process. The set you linked were shot at Jersey Ave in New Brunswick, New Jersey. I prefer that spot as its closer and NJ Transit runs there and does run Diesel sets from Atlantic City on the weekend. As for Bristol, its another favorite spot. There are diesels in the form of Freight power plus the NJT ACES trains P40 plus on weekends NJT Atlantic City to MMC moves.

What time did you shoot these photos at Bristol? Around 3:30p or so train 161 took a young female off of track 3. Very sad and the remains were just ungodly to look at. What really bother me was people that were driving on Highway 13 could see the body on the engine because the street runs right next to the tracks.

My current camera fleet includes 2 35mm film bodies (Nikon F70 and F80) and 2 digital bodies, (D300 and D80 - withdrawn). All have blessed me with published photos (mostly non-transport related), so if it is good enough for the discerning magazine editor, then it's good enough for me :D I generally do work for a wedding dress maker, sports, some motor racing, and a whole lot of random stuff, with a preference for night photography.

Coolio on the Acelas! Quick question I've been notcing that it's over 90 days and the Acela trainsets are still running with the front pantographs on each power cars. Did the "saving the wire vs wear/tear" test come out positive and are they using that from now on?
