From the Rear Platform
Author: bandob

Travel by PV may give the opportunity for photos out the rear. Here's some shots from the rear of Trains 67 and 66 on October 13, 2007. First, the small yard at Fredericksburg, VA and the Meade Monument on the battlefield. It marks the spot where the Union Army broke through the confederate lines. It was erected to show RR passengers that they were passing through the battlefield.

Thanks for the kind words. You can see more photos from trains over on the Passenger Train Forum. Do a search for "From the Window of A Train." There are shots from Amtrak 29, 30, and 6, and Metra IC within the last month.

Ashland is not true street running.All it is,is a street on both sides of the track.Street running is when trains and automobiles have to fight for RofW.
