6 axle GE
Title:  6 axle GE
Description:  My trips to Jersey were somewhat sporadic, and often were tied to riding the many routes across the Garden State, and not necessarily toward catching the freight action. Im glad I rode all I could at the time-the equipment and some of the routes are gone-but looking back, I wish I had spent more time staking out the freights, which also had some interesting power in those days. I did not see many 6 axle U boats, but once in a while I'd get lucky. This one was on a freight at Kearny yard, seen from a passing DLW train between Hoboken and Newark.

Title:  CR w/b
Description:  This w/b was conveniently tied down across from the shopping center in Leetsdale. CR 6503 was less than two years old and still looked fresh. The main track I'm standing on was lifted not too long after this shot, around the holidays.
