I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend… Although I managed to get slightly sunburnt, we certainly had some lovely weather! Maybe you even partook in some of the events for National Train Day in Grand Central? I saw quite a few of you there, apologies to the folks I never got a chance to meet up with and say hi.
My weekend was quite full with Train Day festivities, as well as my first photographic foray to the foreign territory that is the Hudson Line. At Poughkeepsie I achieved the milestone of my 100th Metro-North station photographed. When you think about it, I mostly take pictures of stations, not trains (though stations do look better when there are trains present). But there was certainly an exception to that over the weekend, as I managed to snap quite an array of trains in various places along all three lines. Want to know how my weekend was? It is far easier to show you in photographs than it is in words – so here is a little bit of randomness from the past few days.
Otto and I were briefly at the DRM yesterday for chuckles… That is the first time I’ve ever seen it on the turntable, but I don’t really frequent the place.
Nice shot of the Acela. Was that being towed in or out?
On its way out later that afternoon.
Sounds like a great weekend! Great pictures too! I missed the festivities; I had to work my own train that day… :)
