Amtrak on the Hudson—Looking like a Model Railway.

I made this view the other day at Garrison, New York on the old New York Central Hudson Division.

The combination of my elevated angle, soft lighting, unusual track arrangement with a short tunnel, plus a clean Amtrak Genesis dual-mode locomotive make this scene look like a well-executed model railway.

Cranford, New Jersey—first visit!

Last month I visited Cranford, New Jersey to meet Pat Yough on our way to dinner with black & white photo guru Gordon Roth.

I’d seen many photographs made at this former Central Railroad of New Jersey location.

Hey! Where are the camelbacks? The double-ended Baldwins? SD35s with time freights?

I didn’t even see a vendor selling T-shirts that read, ‘I visited Cranford, but all I saw was an NJ Transit Dual-Mode with bi-levels!’
