DC Area Shots
Author: dwatry

I was in DC a few weeks ago for a conference and managed to get away from work for a few shots around the area.

1)  Southbound CSX coal train at Crystal City.
2)  Same.
3)  Southbound VRE at Crystal City.

4)  Going-away shot of VRE train at Crystal City.  I had been hoping for a shot looking this direction of a northbound Amtrak NE Regional train, but the VRE train was late and blocked the view of ther Amtrak train.  Good location for future reference though!
5)  Rode MARC up to Rockville - caught this MARC power of several generations just north of Union Station.
6)  MARC train in Rockville.

Looks like lighting has improved at Metro stations. Much brighter than I remember.

Metro is converting station lighting to LEDs.
