    Photo caption, for the lead photo: left-to-right, New Haven Line westbound MUs, coming down the fly-over and onto the ex-NYC. They are lined for Track #4 (south); M-NR MUs, northbound (NYC – westbound) headed for Mount Vernon West/WPNS/Brewster North on Track #1; NH MUs diverging from Track #3, eastbound, at Woodlawn, for New Rochelle Jct (Shell) and New Haven. Spent many hours there, and in the old Woodlawn (WO/CP 112) tower. Just up the hill is where the improperly-deployed, operator air-actuated NH third rail shoes got clipped off by trackside guard hardware before fouling NYC’s third rail. Happened a lot, on the FL-9s. EP-5s were dead-in-the-water if that occurred, a rare occocurence with the electric motors and the MUs., and EP-3s, They dropped their pants and third rail shoes at the same time, coasting down the flyover.

    Em. Congratulations on getting married. Wish I could have been there. Bet it was the perfect location with your background on the Harlem. And happy to see you’re employed at Amtrak. My cousin spent some time there. But, looking at your photos, which I really adore, I was wondering how you obtained the photo of 3 trains under Nereid Ave approaching the BRP? I could not imagine stopping my car and getting out to snap a pic. You were there at the right time with no traffic? Splendid.

      Thanks! There’s a little space where you can walk up there on the bridge. You can park your car down at the bottom and walk up.
