That Corman stuff is nice. I've always wanted to see something there.

Just got back from Point of Rocks and CSX is tamping the switches there today.  Here's some of the equipment in use.




Also saw  a few trains.  First up the Eastbound Cap.

Westbound behind 5 engines.  Check out the SD50-2 still in Conrail paint.

Westbound Brunswick local off the Old Main Line with 2 car.

And finally an Eastbound with loaded gons with what looked like stone.


Not bad for only 3 hours.

Earlier today I posted a JG Corman photo and it appeared as an attachment. How do I post it to appear as a large photo initially as the others posted here today? Thanks!

Late to the party, as usual, but I wanted to add the following pictures.  My wife and I spent our honeymoon last week on a seven-day cruise to Port Canaveral, Florida and Nassau and Freeport in the Bahamas.

I took the first two pictures standing on the cruise ship, Carnival Pride, before we left the dock at the Port of Baltimore.  On the opposite side of I-95 from the port, as you can see, is a rail yard with what appears to be a steam locomotive tender residing therein.  Any one know what is going on with this Vandy tender?  It was still there when we returned last Sunday.


Zoomed in somewhat:


The following picture was taken from a moving tour bus at the Kennedy Space Center, where I caught these two flat cars:



Finally, although non-rail related, I just thought this picture I took at sunset in Nassau is cool, so here you go:



Enjoy,

Congrats Dave and welcome home.

Lee brought up that tender a while back. I think it belongs to the B&O Museum, but they might be out of room or something along those lines. Its not going anywhere.

Thanks, Brian!  I assume that it's protected among the chain-link fence, so hopefully, it will stay safe.
