Winter Railfanning
at Point of Rocks, MD
December 27, 2009

I slept out under the cold (& windy) November stars to get a full day railfanning the NS H-Line

November 28, 2009


I made an "exploration" down the full length of the NS' Winston-Salem District and only shot one train -- this southbound headed to the car unloading facility at Walkertown, NC.

12 axles.   Yep, I'd say that's worthy of a photo even on a dreary Autumn day.

A long weekend on the Pokey...

Rockville Bridge in Harrisburg, PA

I spent a surprisingly cool Sunday morning at a bluff high above the Rockville Bridge in Harrisburg, PA.  The bridge is host to a good volume of traffic.

I was just hanging out at the railfan parking lot at North Collier when other railfans told of a special consist Southbound out of Acca in Richmond.  A look at the ATCS display told me I had "plenty" of time before setting up for the shot -- WRONG!  I was just barely able to pop out of the Jeep to get these going-away shots of Mass Volunteer Fire Association equipment...

Petersburg, VA

Yep, while I'm here I might as well shoot some NS action...

Petersburg, VA

I've railfanned the CSX in Maryland from Point of Rocks westward for over two decades but I have almost NEVER ventured East on the Old Main Line.  In fact, I believe this is the first photo I've ever shot on that line!

Eastbound at the West Plane signals
Mt Airy, MD
9:55am
July 4, 2009


The trees have been cleared back this Spring giving a much better view of the Saterwhite signals so I used them as a prop for these helpers returning to Brunswick from the Old Main Line.

Point of Rocks, MD

July 19, 2009

Here's a shot that's really not up to my standards but has some promise.  The next time I need to somehow get a little more elevation, and park my Jeep elsewhere!
