NJ Part I – the last two days of August 1


Last week I had to go down to New Jersey again for work, and as usual, I made my way trackside to shoot in the off hours.  Here’s the first part of the week – the last two days of August.

With the days getting shorter, getting out to shoot in the daylight during non-office hours is getting tougher and tougher.  But I managed to fit in some shooting between the rising and setting of the sun.  For the last two days of August, I managed to get out to Bound Brook, Flemington and Manville, NJ to shoot NJ Transit and Norfolk Southern trains.  There’s even a couple aircraft shots of planes passing overhead on their way to Newark International.
