Train from the train window
Author: bandob

Back in 2007 I caught this NJT train from Amtrak. There are several locations on the NEC where one can do that, but I admit I do not know this location. Any help appreciated.

Good luck getting a shot like that today through the filthy windows...

Interesting theme. Can we riff on that a little?

Washington, MO, early 2022.

The signal bridge seems to still be there --
just no signals now. (And no signals when
you took the pic.)

BANDOB -  Location is LANE Tower in South Newark, NJ.  (MP 12.6)
Track under the overpass is the PRR,PC "Greenville Branch" according
to the November, 1971 Penn Central Employee Timetable.
The building in the background is the Anhueser-Busch ("Bud Light") brewery.

Here's LANE looking south (opposite of the OP's photo) with some motors and trains that no longer exist.  Taken 3-15-2010

Where would the circus train go from there?

RBENKO - How the scene has changed! Are those apartments
or houses in the background on what used to be Waverly Yard?

None of Waverly was SW of Lane.
Bridge 12.37 in the foreground is
over McClellan, and the apartments
are SW of that.

How has that scene changed since 2010?

To Long Island via Penn Station and the East River tunnels.  Amtrak would hand off the train at Harold Interlocking (just east of the tunnels adjacent to Sunnyside yard), where four or five LIRR MP15s would take it to the Garden City spur, at which it would be parked for the duration of their stay at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY.
