Fred, can those cosmos run down the connecting railroad into NYP, or does the 3rd rail fowl?

They can't run on Amtrak's voltages on the wire and where they'd meet LIRR 3rd rail it would be a horrorshow of torn down rail. Retractable 3rd rail shoes and retrofitted electric would make it work.

They should do that then. Am i correct in assuming the voltage is original from the first years of NYC electrification?

 

All you'd need is a dual inverter transformer, swap em out, give it an operating range of currents. Retractable shoes also.

 

I'd love to see service from CT to NYP. :eek:

 

 

Fortunately the M8's will solve that problem

 

They will have the new transformer types and retractable shoes? It would be so wicked to have MNRR service run into NYP. :eek::eek::tup:

They'd have to run on MN NH line voltage then switch to Amtrak voltage then switch to old PRR vintage Amtrak voltage at Sunnyside and then to NYP. The Acelas and AEM7's can do all this and hopefully the M8's will be able to.

I made a mistake here; the rail wouldn't be torn out but the shoes would be torn off the cars.

I love these pictures. But aside for the trains, I'm in love with the arch design of that overpass. But, I can't ever figure out what street it is...

 

Thanks RokuSix, it is Nereid Avenue, just down the hill from the (2)(5) station ;)

Fred captured the baby brother of a far grander structure.

I'm not sure the bridges are related at all, they might be, but i just thought you'd find the similarity in the arch design cool & interesting. :cool:
