Railfanning 11/19/2014

Hi, Dale and I spent the second day of his visit on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor.

Our first stop was in Northeast, MD and it was cold and windy along the water.  Among the trains we saw were this Acela and

Norfolk Southern train 38Q.

We then moved to the overpass where MD Route 272 crosses the corridor.

Our first train at this location was a Washington, DC bound Acela.

We were surprised when this line car came along.

Because I had forgotten to bring my scanner this oil train snuck up on us.

I wanted to catch an east bound train at Newark, DE so that was our next stop.  Unfortunately, by the time we got there the light had shifted so that west bound trains were well lit.

We caught three west bound trains, one Acela and two conventional.  One convention train was  hauled by a new ACS 64 and

one by an AEM-7.

For the final stop on the tour we went to Havre de Grace, MD.  The first train through was a commuter train that ran from Perryville, across the Susquehanna, to Washington, DC.

While waiting for more trains I spotted this very small tow boat.  Its a good thing there were no waves.

Here is a westbound Acela near the far shore.

Still in Havre de Grace we moved to a more broadside spot (above and below).

Thanks for looking.
