Dueling Toasters
Title:  Dueling Toasters
Description:  SEPTA's “Great Valley Flyer” to Thorndale wastes no time overtaking the Paoli local at Bryn Mayr during the height of the evening rush on Amtrak’s Harrisburg Line. Both trains are powered by a pair of sequentially-numbered AEM7s living on borrowed time. These two tired motors are staring down the barrel of retirement as SEPTA prepares to phase in the newly delivered ACS-64s from Siemens. It appears this summer will be the last for SEPTA's toasters.

The Other P&W
Title:  The Other P&W
Description:  Did you know there's a P&W on the West Coast? Well... Now you do! The Portland & Western, now like its east coast "cousin," is a G&W short-line based out of the Portland/Vancouver area. On a really crappy Afternoon in Vancouver the seasonal weather doesn't disappoint as P&W 633 (running as F PWVAAB1 19T on BNSF) round the curve at Vancouver's Amtrak Station about to cross the Columbia River Bridge into Portland with a trio of orange geeps. Thanks to the orange EMDs and some colorful #SCE I managed to capture a color other than grey while foaming that day.

A Rough Night on the Lehigh Line
Title:  A Rough Night on the Lehigh Line
Description:  Its was a terribly stormy night in South Plainfield, NJ on this March evening. In the midst of a powerful noreaster a westbound CSX Q417 holds just east of the Front Street crossing with an ex-Conrail SD80MAC on the point. All the railroads in North Jersey were taking a beating based on all the radio chaos and Conrails Lehigh Line was no exception. NS 65J (who had literally just cleared Front Street a few minutes before) was reporting they were in emergency after a car drove through the gates and into the north side of their trailing engine at Clinton Avenue just a few miles ahead. This mess caused all traffic on the Lehigh Line to grind to a stop as the powerful storm raged on. A few moments after stopping the conductor of the Q417 emerged from the beastly 5,000HP engine and told us about their adventurous trip from Newarks Oak Island Yard. What was normally an easy journey of less than 30 miles turned into an 8+ hour escapade. Faced with signal problems, multiple crossing failures and downed trees obstructing the rails this crew was not going to set any speed records on tonights trip. The delay caused by the disabled NS 65J was the final nail in the coffin and a few short hours later they hit the 12-hour mark and expired on the main. This train and its stranded crew spent the remainder of the night weathering the storm waiting on a fresh crew to relieve them and try again the following morning.

Pressed Into Passenger
Title:  Pressed Into Passenger
Description:  As NJ Transit struggles to comply with the federally mandated Positive Train Control requirements many cab cars have become unavailable as they are retrofitted with the new PTC systems. In order to maintain service locomotives have been acting as "cab cars" on the east ends of train all across the system. Sometimes those engines used are those normally reserved for non-revenue work trains such as seen here. Eastbound Train #1204 is seen here just after crossing the Hackensack River at Upper Hack drawbridge and was lead by one of four GP40-2s on the NJ Transit roster. These engines are usually assigned as work and protect power to outlying terminals such as Dover, Long Branch and Morrisville and have rarely been used to power scheduled revenue passenger trains.

Upper Hack Lift
Title:  Upper Hack Lift
Description:  Westbound Train #57 crosses the Hackensack River at Upper Hack drawbridge on its way to Port Jervis. The bridge currently holds the title of the newest movable bridge on NJ Transit property. It was built by the Delaware Lackawanna & Western in 1958 to replace the original two-track span that was outdated and damaged by tidal river currents. The expenses related to building this bridge were among the final straws to break the camels back for the Lackawanna Railroad that would eventually result in the official merger of the Erie and the Lackawanna in October of 1960.

Empties to Fresh Kills
Title:  Empties to Fresh Kills
Description:  Conrail's BY-1 job based out of Bay Way leads a 19-car train of empty New York City trash containers with an ex-Erie Lackawanna SD45-2 to the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island. The train is running below high voltage utility lines that gives this short stretch of former Baltimore & Ohio track the appearance of an electrified railroad. Off in the distance the remains of the Gothals Bridge can be seen shrouded by the two modern replacements which will soon finally replace the original 80-year old span once and for all.

The Poo-Poo Choo-Choo
Title:  The Poo-Poo Choo-Choo
Description:  New Jersey is really good at producing garbage. So much so that NS has their own dedicated daily train to take out the trash. It's earned a handful of nick names. Garbage Express, The Stink and the Poo-Poo Choo-Choo are amongst some of the ones that stand out. Pictured here is an endangered standard cab SD70 leading the eastbound empty portion of this trash turn arriving at the west end of Oak Island Yard as it crosses Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. Not to far from here the train will come to a stop after taking headroom on the P&H to shove down towards the Northeast Corridor at CP-Stock until a Conrail crew is ready to handle the train for delivery to South Kearny.

C&O for Progress
Title:  C&O for Progress
Description:  The biggest conspiracy to hit the rails in some time moves around Oak Island's service facility at 91 Bay after arriving on NS 18G a few hours before. This former CSX SD70ACe was unofficially made into a C&O heritage locomotive over the last few days. It's new patches have caused quite a stir amongst the buff community over whether it's an elaborate Photoshop job or not. I assure you I was not paid by men in black suits and unmarked cars to continue the lie. Or was I...

The Scoot at Wesmont
Title:  The Scoot at Wesmont
Description:  The "Bayonne Scoot" rounds the curve at Wesmont Station with a 3-car train bookended by ex-CNJ GP40Ps (CNJ 3683 and CNJ 3672). This is the 4108's first day in passenger service since July 24th, 2014. It has since been "overhauled" and converted into a non-revenue locomotive. Today it is filling in as a cab car along with four of its sisters on other trains across the Hoboken Division. The train is passing the mostly empty and quiet grounds of the former Farmland Dairy facility.

Passenger and Industrial
Title:  Passenger and Industrial
Description:  An eastbound Bergen County Line local to Hoboken arrives at Wesmont Station rounding the curve at Curtis Wright. The train is lead by one of 13 ex-CNJ GP40Ps (one of six sets like this on the Hoboken Division). The train passes through the industrial landscape of Wallington and Wood-Ridge. This area was at one point one of North Jersey's industrial strongholds with the massive Curtis Wright complex being one of the major manufacturing sites for the war effort during the second World War. Today much of these industrial properties have either been converted to warehouses or have been cleared to make way for retail and townhouses. The Farmland Dairy facility to the left of the scene was one of the more recent facilities to close its doors in December of 2013 resulting in the loss of over 300 North Jersey jobs. What the future holds in store for the vast property is uncertain but it wouldn't come as a surprise to learn of expanded retail and residential construction.

Off Goes the Santa Train
Title:  Off Goes the Santa Train
Description:  The annual "Railmen for Children" Santa Train departs Hoboken for Newark, The Oranges, Denville and Montclair with a trainload of children from schools all across the area. The children aboard this train are treated with gifts, music, food and a visit from Santa. The entire trip is made possible by the employee operated Railmen for Children charity and cooperation by NJ Transit who has been providing a train to the event every year since 1983. The equipment used and the people involved have changed over the years but one thing remains the same: The Santa Drumhead. This hand-painted drumhead has been affixed to the cab car of every Railmen for Children Santa Train since the very beginning and will continue to make its annual appearance for many years to come!

Toasted Croissant
Title:  Toasted Croissant
Description:  On a warm Saturday afternoon, February 20, 2016 one of Amtraks last three remaining AEM7-ACs was tasked with leading "The Crescent" from New York to Washington. The train is seen here biting into the S-curves at Elizabeth with the 8-car New Orleans-bound train in tow. It was certainly one of the more photographed trains on the Northeast Corridor in some time as railfans try to document these veteran "toasters" in their final months of service.
