The New York Central station is Grand Central Terminal.

The subway station underneath is Grand Central Station.

GCT is usually called GCS by nonrailfans, including most people from New York.

Pacific Northwest local here.

The scenery on the LD trains will still be interesting when snow covered, but you'll miss a lot more of it due to the shorter days and longer nights. They're still fun ...

Unconfirmed reports in Rail Express that it is Macquarie taking on the remaining 51% of GWA.

Thanks, all. I'm definitely spending a day in the Hunter Valley. There are days though where the 3+ hour trip from Sydney isn't feasible. For these, I'm looking at closer locations. I understand that  ...

The planning is new done, and the trip is coming up soon. Thanks, all, for the advice.

I have just a couple of questions, mainly related to train count.

Thanks all for the help.

Looks like that Sunday the Steamrail train is set to leave Ballarat at 18:45, which will put it back into Newport sometime after 20:00. Is Sunshine Station the best place  ...

Thanks, all for the information.

I've done some more research, and it looks like according to the 31/03/19 V/Line freight tables that most of the freight runs at night, particularly in the winter. ...

Thanks, all for the helpful advice.

I'll have one day in Adelaide, a Friday late in the month.

Planning has progressed. I'm currently thinking of waking up early and taking a Belair train to E ...

Thanks, all.

I'm well aware that most of the Main South shots are probably impractical for this trip, and there's a good chance I won't get  west of Moss Vale at all. Just trying to get a good ove ...

Thank you both. Looks like from the ARTC schedules that Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons are the busiest daylight times (assuming that things run within a few hours of schedule) aro ...

Hello,

I'm planning a visit from the States to Australia in May and June, and am trying to figure out how to maximize my railfanning time. From my research, it looks like the best/most popular spots  ...

Hello,

I'm trying to plan a visit to Victoria in late May, generally concentrating around the Melbourne area.

I'm looking to do some railfanning, and am trying to figure out the best locations and ...

Hello,

I know there are a bunch of threads on visiting the Adelaide area, but most of them haven't been updated in at least a couple years, so I'm hoping to find some updated info.

I'll be visitin ...

Hello,

Member who hasn't checked in for a year or two. I'm an American that's planning on visiting the Perth area sometime in late May. Right now, seems like the Midland area and possibly Thornlie st ...

The MTA suffers from a few things. The real problem is that it is a very political animal. One consequence is that is full of positions granted as political favors. It's particularly noticeable on the ...

I suspect the 'Light' refers to locomotive weight rather than emissions. I don't expect that anyone will pick up any Tier IV export power unless their emissions standards require it as they are costli ...

The tank cars were full, but at that time Bakken oil was not separated before loading, so all of the volatile gases such as propane were still mixed in with the rest of the crude, causing the BLEVEs.  ...

[quote=BDA]NorthWest the thing with Dash 9s and AC4400s is that they can't be made new for use in the US and NS would have looked at the cost of upgrading Dash 9s vs the cost of new Tier 4 locomotives ...

I know that this is tangential to the thread, but a few notes on the EMD rebuilds:

The SD90MACs' (710-powered, the 265H-powered ones were the SD90MAC-H and SD90MAC-H IIs) major struggle was the ele ...

I can't seem to determine whether or not the AC44C6Ms have new FDLs or not, but I suspect that they do, or completely upgraded and rebuilt ones. Whatever was cheaper... These conversions are expensive ...

The scary part is really what came after:
