Playing with early morning light on this F E F.

At this time-of-year the Sun rises in the Southeast and streams in the South-facing Train Room window so the light hits this Northwest facing engine.

 

A few feet further forward:

I like this shot the best, taken with the train another few feet further forward:

Finally, a Front End of a different kind:

Here we go with my originally intended entries for today.  My 7:02 am photo sent in earlier this morning on my commute was just perfect timing 

Two shots from last Friday afternoon of southbound Tri-Rail trains at the Metrorail/Tri-Rail Transfer Station in Hialeah.

First, loco BL36PH #822

And then GP49 #816.  This was an out of service train leaving the Hialeah rail yards to Miami Airport to get in place for its northbound run.

You will notice that the trains are running to the left side of the engineer.  Because of the design of the transfer station, both northbound and southbound trains will alternate the platform they operate on. The west side platform I took the pictures from is the one that is directly connected to the Metrorail station (the east side platform is connected via overhead walkway to the west side platform on the north end of the station in addition to crossing the tracks at-grade at the south end of the station) so depending on the time of day, the trains with the majority of the directional flow of passengers gets the west side platform so that commuters can make their transfer connections easier to/from each mode.

Since its still Friday where I am, here's a couple of fast front ends from a trip my wife and I took to Italy last May (about which I posted a short description on OGR last June).  These front ends look fast, even when standing still.  The first is Alstom's ETR-675 for the private rail Italo, which we rode from Rome to Venice.

The second is Bombardier's ETR1000, the "red arrow" built for the state railway Trenitalia

which we rode from Venice to Florence.

 Johan, that is a great looking box car'..  Did you modify that back end with the opening doors?  Great auto car'...

Ted. Thank you. Yes, the back doors are 3D printed and i build also the interior. This is a speeder car. The idea came from to Joey Kelley. 🤝received_2477226079230122received_45099814244000820200120_23063520200120_231015

Happy F E F to all here!

And this pic I took yesterday:

MTH got the horns almost correct. On the prototype they are centered whereas on the model they are offset to the right but I'm good with it. Also, the trucks are white on the prototype, not gray.

 Lew, that is a very handsome locomotive'.. Didn't know NASA had locos. Where did you take that photo?  We need more information and history'...
