Rumbling around a curve along Syene Road
Title:  Rumbling around a curve along Syene Road
Description:  The occupants of the numerous residential developments that sprung up in this area during the intervening years were none too thrilled with the re-opening of the rail line. However, trains are not particularly frequent and usually run during the day.

Chasing a train on this sunny fall afternoon seems like a CAPITOL idea!
Title:  Chasing a train on this sunny fall afternoon seems like a CAPITOL idea!
Description:  The weather has turned sharply cooler with long stretches of clouds and rain of late, so this was a well-timed break! 4172 was formerly WSOR 4003.

WAMX 4223 looks sharp in the autumn evening light as the T3 power rolls out of the fuel ramp
Title:  WAMX 4223 looks sharp in the autumn evening light as the T3 power rolls out of the fuel ramp
Description:  Ever wonder what a WSOR SD45 would look like? Wonder no more! Although, 4223 has been remotored with a 16-cylinder, 3K HP 645 to become the functional equivalent of an SD40-2. The unit spent about a year in service on the WSOR in its ex-CIT modified UP scheme (red/white nose chevrons). I'm fond of that scheme and would have liked to catch it then, but I gotta say this looks better!
