Railfanning the Northeast Corridor - 10/18

Hi, Stan and I spent our second day along the Northeast Corridor.

Our first stop was Northeast, MD.  This is a difficult place to shoot as eastbound trains just pop out from behind the trees on the left (out of the photo) with no warning.

After a number of attempts at Northeast clouds moved in so we moved south to Perryville.  The prime photo location of a northbound train crossing the bridge over the Susquehanna River is now obscured by trees.  However, Stan liked this angle.

We then crossed the river to Havre de Grace.  Our first stop was the American Legion dock.  Both the American Flag and the MIA-POW flag fly here.  In all three of the above photos the trains are powered by the new City Sprinter locomotives.

An AEM7 has this Northeast Regional train in Tow.

Acelas provide photo opportunities southbound or northbound (as here).

The southbound Silver Star crossed the bridge at about 1:25 PM, running on time.

For our last location in Havre de Grace we walked down river a couple of blocks and shot outside the Tidewater Grill (above and below).

We then relocated to Perryman where we photographed this southbound Northeast Regional train coming under the signals.  We moved on to Edgewood, MD but clouds suddenly appeared and we decided to call it an early day at 3:30 PM.  Thanks for looking.
