After witnessing the interchange from FEC to CSX at Oleander, I made a run over to the 79th. St. crossing at Hialeah. I thought about taking Milam Dairy, but decided to go LeJeune instead as ATCS revealed two Tri-Rail trains, P632 and P629, operating between the Hialeah Market and Miami Airport stations. I passed them on Perimeter Rd. as they were slowing and continued on to the Metrorail Transfer Station. I arrived just as P632 was about to depart northbound on Track-1, but a smoking passenger caused a delay, forcing P957-29 to stop between Iris and 79th. St. As soon as P632 was out of the way, P957-29 proceeded at restricted speed past me and into Hialeah Yard. From there, I went over to the Miami Amtrak station, but didn't stay very long; just long enough to catch a minute or two of video while P957-29 was backing up to the station platform and to use the men's room in the waiting area. While, in the lavatory, I had an interesting albeit brief conversation with an unnamed Amtrak official who rode the train from Jacksonville. I made an off the cuff remark to him about how bad of shape the restroom was in and how the building has seen better days. I went on to mention that the new proposed station at the MIC would be a welcome addition to the area and the thought of another station downtown on the FEC didn't seem practical. While he did not delve into any specifics with me, he did say in no uncertain terms that the plans for a new station at the MIC were still on track ...
Welcome back. This is the best ride ever through out the whole PATH Ride. This is also the longest ride from the PATH Trains. This is the Last part of the PATH going towards Harrison on the Newark Penn Station bound. More info will be on the Annotations. Please enjoy the video and stay tuned for more videos.
Due to a track equipment problem between the Civic Center & 16th St./Mission Stations, trains coming from the East Bay (in this case the trains were coming from Pittsburg/Bay Point & Fremont) had to terminate at Montgomery then switch tracks via the crossover tracks between Montgomery & Embarcadero. This made for a hell of a late morning commute. At least I was able to catch video of something that doesn't happen every day on BART. (there are 1 or 2 trains per weekday that do turn around at Montgomery, but not in this circumstance.)
myworldtravel.weebly.com NYC subway trains at Brooklyn bridge City Hall station. Please comment, rate and subscribe. The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system owned by the City of New York and leased to the New York City Transit Authority, a subsidiary agency of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and also known as Metropolitan transit authority New York City Transit. It is one of the oldest and most extensive public transportation systems in the world, with 468 stations in operation (421 if stations connected by transfers are counted as a single station); 229 miles (369 km) of routes, translating into 656 miles (1056 km) of revenue track; and a total of 842 miles (1355 km) including non-revenue trackage. In 2008, the subway delivered over 1.623 billion rides, averaging over five million on weekdays, 2.9 million on Saturdays, and 2.3 million on Sundays. The New York City Subway trails only the metro systems of Tokyo, Moscow and Seoul in annual ridership and carries more passengers than all other rail mass transit systems in the United States combined. It is one of the four systems, with PATH, parts of the Chicago 'L', and PATCO to offer service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

After a two-year wait, the MTH R142A subway cars have been delivered, and I got mine on the test track just as soon as I got them home. Unlike many of my videos, this train is a brand-spanking new product that is just hitting stores as of a week prior to this video being uploaded. Thus, you can find it at your MTH dealer (assuming they carry subway trains--you might have to look around a bit if you don't live in the Northeast), or Ebay. Although Protosound2 doesn't yet have a program for direct-drive electrics (like older subway sets, it uses a diesel program (albeit with more memory for the station stops), which explains why traction motor sounds often rev up and down independent of the train's actual speed), the MTH sound engineer did a fine job working around the limitations, so as long as you accelerate at a prototypical rate, the AC propulsion sounds will play just like the real thing. I'd advise turning off the speed control (one long horn, two short bells) if you run these with anything less than a *big* transformer (I'm using a 100-watt Z-1000). Details MTH included include: --Accurate A and B cars --Underbody detail unique to both A and B cars --Separate air spring/shock absorber details on the trucks --Trip cock details on the proper location on the trucks --Separately applied grab irons and storm-door chains. --Car numbers printed on their roofs --Short-shank couplers installed In the second part of this video, I attempt to demonstrate a station stop sequence ...

Passing by westbound on Track 2 passing Metro-North New Haven Line's Larchmont Station in Larchmont, Westchester County, NY, is NJT Test Train NJMN 3025, seen here coming from New Haven Union Station to New York Penn Station. With MNR train crews qualifying on the equipment and on the Amtrak Hell Gate Line (CP 216 to Penn), and NJT, Amtrak and MNR supervision aboard. This train usually makes 2 round trips, the first being the run to New Haven union Station, and later in the afternoon the final round trip usually goes to one of 3 locations to turn back west to Penn : CP 217 (New Rochelle; east of New Rochelle Station), CP 223 (Rye, halfway between Harrison and Rye MNR stations) or Stamford (typically in the station). The MNR crews on here are qualifying on the equipment and also making qualification runs on the Hell Gate Line in preparation for the start of direct service to NJ from New Haven, CT for the upcoming Giants/Jets football season. The trains will run between New Haven and Stamford, making select stops, and onward to NY Penn, where MNR crews will change off and NJT crews will take the train the rest of the way to Secaucus, where passengers will transfer off from the NEC to the Meadowlands Shuttle Trains which will operate via the NJT Pascack Valley Line to a spur leading from the PVL to the Meadowlands Station. Expected start of service will be in August at the kickoff of the 2009 Giants/Jets football season. Today's consist for the Test Train is Bombardier ML ...
CCTV - San Francisco, July 18, 2009 New video of last Saturdays collision between two Muni trains was released Wednesday, showing images that a Muni spokesman described as flat-out disturbing. The video of the accident from cameras mounted inside the West Portal Muni station where the accident took place Saturday afternoon just before 3 pm A K-Train had just unloaded passengers and was stopped waiting for the signal to exit the tunnel. Right behind it, an L-Train keeps coming and coming until the violent impact. Passengers on the platform seem initially shocked at the collision, but then approach the train seemingly to check on the passengers. A Muni spokesman said the video is hard to watch. It's flat out disturbing to see one train hit another like that, said agency spokesman Judson True. National Transportation Safety Board investigators said the video is part of their examination into what happened and why. The crash sent four people to the hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. 43 others were less seriously injured. The investigation could take up to a year, according to the NTSB. The driver of the L-Train, 61-year-old Henry Gray, told authorities he blacked out moments before the collision. Investigators said before losing consciousness, Gray switched the train controls from automatic to manual, which is against Muni protocols. But Muni drivers said it is a common practice to save time. Muni officials have since issued an edict. "What we have done ...
Filmed 28 June 2009. Kauniainen, Finland. Kauniainen lies about 16 kilometers west from Helsinki. Track continues to other commuter stations and finally ends at Turku. There goes Pendolinos and InterCitys between Turku and Helsinki. Commuter trains, Sm1 and Sm2 , mostly with red-white colour, are going. Its hard to see any differences between those commuter trains. These red-white colour trains are "new type". There is an "old type" red-yellow colour Sm2 commuter train (somewhere in these parts). All the Sm1:s are fixed to "new type" trains between years 1996-2000. Older type Sm2:s are still left but only nine. The crossing got lights and an electronic bell. The station of kauniainen was badly burned in the end of 2008, and fixing is still in progress. PS. I had my little stepbrother with me and it was difficult ot keep his mouth shut. :D
