The next day while connecting to Boston via Amtrak at New Haven I spend an hour or so photographing the morning rush at Harlem 125th St Station. After that I wandered around the New Haven station complex a little longer than I had anticipated due to my Regional train being significantly delayed.
Finally, I took a few more photos in and around the Portland, NH area. You can enjoy the full set of photos here and also stay tuned for a special video post to follow.
We begin at Grant Central Terminal with M3 #8017
Unfortunately that Budd was not for me as I caught a Push-pull trainset to Ossining with Shoreliner cab car #6309.
After heading out to the park, the first train that showed up was the westbound Amtrak Train #49 being pulled by a beleaguered P32AC-DM #707. Heritage cars still in consist.
Following close behind was an MNRR Poughkeepsie train with P32AC-DM #206 in the lead and a red-blue set of Shoreliners behind.
Alex told me that there might be a meet and he was right as two MNRR diesel trains passed, the second pushed by P32AC-DM #217.
Not long after southbound Empire service train #242 with Amtrak P32AC-DMs #712 and #713 popped out of the tunnel on track #3.
Here is a video of both the meet and the double headed Empire train.
As we got into rush hour another northbound diesel train with MNRR P32AC-DM #212 headed north of track #2.
Soon followed by a southbound MNRR on track #3 with P32AC-DM #218.
Last but not least a more to the north end of the tunnels bagged me a rear shot of Amtrak Empire train #237.
Alex catches a M3 express train into the city with the last stop of Tarrytown. I can never pass on filming an express run, but before we opened the taps I snagged MNRR P32AC-DM pulling an outbound diesel train just north of the Tarrytown Station.
Now I didn't actually get off at 125th St. I first rode all the way into GCT to get breakfast with Lexcieeee before heading back out via the (4)/(5) to Harlem 125th St station. Once there one of the first trains I caught was an inbound push-pull set with P32AC-DM #223.
A short while later I caught this trio if inbound MNRR equipment heading towards midtown.
A few M2/4/6's were still running like #8516 here.
Here New Haven Railroad P32AC-DM #229 pulls in opposite a brand new M8 trainset.
