Black Friday On The NEC
Author: overniteman

Spent about 2 hours on the Corridor. For sheer train volume, it's unbeatable. The problem is this time of year, the sun favors Southbounds only.
So you sit on one of the few benches and relax while Northbounds blow by. Only going to post a small selection of today's catches.

At 11:33, Acela 2018 dashes South thru the station. I have to ride one of these just once.

At 11:59, New Jersey Transit ALP-46 4613 pulls into the station with a Trenton local.

All NJT trains out of New York Penn were running about 6-10 minutes late according to the station announcements.

At 12:38, Amtrak "cab car" 9651 heads a 5 car train. Don't know why, but I like the yellow / black on these.

And finally at 1 PM, New Jersey Transit's "Pennsylvania Railroad" ALP-46 4636 pushes it's train into the station. 
Can't catch this engine in the pull mode. only pushing, but it's such pleasure to look at.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Used to watch Pennsy traffic, GG1s and all, from the Smith Street overpass in Perth Amboy. Good to see "the colors" again.
