I was just standing around in Bethel, CT today and I lucked out. Camera, an empty memory card and two crossing gates closing. Can't ask for much better than that.
Also, check out the neat little station in this town. It's a Prewar station.....
It still is the Metro North (not the New Haven) but I love seeing the colors and seeing this thing go flying by on a Sunday. It was two cars and a loco but it was cruising at about 45 MPH and it could have been brand new (the whole consist wasn't).
When I think of postwar trains, this is what I think of! M
