Those are some really nice shots! The first several shots seem to be around Marble Hill and BN/SD (the still active Port Morris Connection, which the NYC Hudson RR took over to get to GCT). The last seem to be Stamford. Not sure where you caught the SLE shot.

Thanks for sharing!
Next stop, Willoughby

I have a question for members of this forum: Does anyone have a pic of any of the siding switches on West of Hudson MNR? I am particularly interested in seeing what Four Story looks like, or some of the others, like 84 Lumber or West or East Red Onion. I'm doing a very short story on the names. Willing to give attribution. Thanks!

A few trains I captured on video at New Rochelle back on the 6th. Also got some Mamaroneck shots from that day I still need to put together/upload.

Sorry for the fact that there is a turd on the platform in a couple of shots... I like how the trains look coming into the station from that angle, location on the platform, and I don't know how to work around the fact that it is there. Guess I have to make the best of a crappy situation. :P

Metro North Locomotive Moving Amtrak Train
19 FEB 2014 an Amtrak train became disabled in Milford and a MNRR locomotive was summoned to pull it into the station so the passengers could be moved to another train.

These videos were taken on the way home from New Haven in May 2015. Both were taken on an M2 train on the New Haven Line. The first video is of a brief express run from Westport to South Norwalk passing through East Norwalk. The second video was taken just after the first video and is of the ride between South Norwalk to Darien passing through Rowayton station. This is likely my last ride on an M2 train. It was a nice ride even though the suspension on the train felt like it was on it's last legs.
