New Jersey June – Part I


Last month I had to make another trek to the Garden State for work, and unlike the past couple trips, I actually got to get out and shoot a bit.  Not as much as usual, but I did manage to make it trackside a few days.  Even made it over into Pennsylvania one evening for a little Keystone State fun.  This is Part 1 of 3 covering two evening visits to Bound Brook.

June 13, 2011

The first evening I managed to bag Conrail, Norfolk Southern and New Jersey Transit under some interesting skies.  Not much I’d consider remarkable about this first visit, but still got some pretty good results.

The second evening again sported some interesting skies, and this time around was only able to catch NJT and CSX for trains.  Tried a few different angles, using one train against the other, but again, nothing I’d consider earth-shattering.
