Train derailment in Hoboken yard causes delays

 

Hoboken - A train derailed around 4:40 p.m. yesterday in NJ Transit’s yard at Hoboken Terminal, throwing the evening rush into confusion for thousands of commuters heading home to Bergen and Passiac counties in New Jersey and Orange and Rockland counties in New York.

NJ Transit expected that delays of 20 to 30 minutes or more would continue through the evening rush and advised commuters to check www.njtransit.com this morning before leaving for their train stations.

Because your camera probably just sucks or its you thats gotta learn how to take better photos. And remember, its the person taking the photo and not the camera....

 

But yeah, the guy who took those photos really knows how to take pictures. And he probably works for NJT or has real close connections with an NJT worker to get close up shots like that.

Because that person is probably shooting with either a Canon EOS 1D MarkII/III or a Canon EOS 1Ds MarkII/III. One of my co-workers shoots with my company'$ Canon EOS 1Ds MarkII and his photos look exactly the same.

 

are those the big fancy SLR's?

Yes one of those big fancy expensive DSLR's.

 

If he's using that. If that person is not then that person has excellent digital photography skills with whatever they're using.

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the compliments.

 

It's a big fancy SLR.

 

(Nikon D70s, with a tripod.. mandatory for low lighting).

 

Oh, and before you ask how I go to so close, sorry. Can't say. :D

You take some fantastic photos devb. A tripod makes all the difference coupled with long a exposure. Nice equipment too.

If it were loaded, there could of been many deadheads and people hurt.

Wow those were some nice pictures. it told the whole story perfect. did anyone find out why it derailed in the first place? maybe the photographer knows what happened?
