Vanishing heritage. If you thought that the former NYC signal bridge near MP30 in Scarborough, NY on the Hudson Line would be gone before the last of the old Tappan Zee Bridge, pay your bookie because you lost. With demolition set for the morning of Tuesday, January 15, 2019 for the eastern span and plans to dissasemble the western span in place, soon the Mario Cuomo Bridge will be the only occupant of the aqueous real estate of the Hudson River in the area. At sunset on Sunday, January 13, 2019, the Amtrak Lake Shore Limited (Train 49, P32AC-DM 710, Phase III leading) crosses under the ancient structure. Get your shots of these as well because there are only a handful of remaining signal bridges below CP 75, and even those no longer serve their intended purpose.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
The GE Genesis series are well known for being Amtrak's locomotive. With confirmation of retirement from Amtrak themselves, their time is limited. Now is your chance to catch them before the chargers arrive!
